Freedoms Taken for Granted.Voices lost. "My Name is...Autism"

The words echo in my brain every minute of everyday. Laying on the couch facing my sons room in the morning 7 years ago. It was a bright warm sunny day with sun streaming in from the large pane window facing East. My son bursts into the room running into my arms. Saying loudly, proudly, and with a smile. While looking me in the eyes, "My name is Tanner. My name is Tanner." That was the last sentence we heard after his vaccinations. He lost his dreams, ability to play, socialize, eat, and sense of world. The name tag now reads... "My Name is.... Autism"
There are others who have been advocates for years. Two heroes of mine one Barbara has been at it for almost 30 years and the Other Linda has been at it for about 20. I am sorry but I do not think I can do it. I have seen it all. Fund raisers, walks, talks, speeches, conferences, twitter day, hunger strikes, rallys, motorcycle runs, campaigns to meet the President, Puzzle pieces on race tracks, Rodney the Giraffe and more working for Autism Awareness and solutions.
I am sorry that I am sad, angry, and disturbed by the apathy of our medical and general community. We have destroyed a generation of children. Soon they will be Adults. While the Government spent the decade out looking for Adults with Autism with OJ in complete denial of the killer / Cause of Autism. There has been an explosion of Autism, Asthma, Allergies, ADHD, Autoimmune disorders, and Assholes who deny the Pandemic. 1 in 6 children now have cognitive delays. Most Autism Experts now believe that the Autism rate is about 1 in 60. The governments statistic 1 in 150 is using figures now over 15 years old. Recently Harvy Karp used the even older 1 in 166.
I have started a campaign on twitter to use the hash tag #APE please use this in your postings to raise awareness and disturb the status quo. I believe we have committed RAPE of the children's minds and souls.
The campaign tag line is Add any R and that is what is happening to families dealing with Autism. I usually add Rising to the Rising Autism Pandemic Evolution. If you add the Retweet to your post it comes out Rt #APE I know this is graphic but again I am not going to wait another 20 years to solve this Pandemic. I do not feel the we have the luxury of continuing down the path of poisoning our air, water, food, and environment. Wake up and smell the roses before they are gone. Help now. Thank You. Tanner would if he could speak. Future children saved will be able too.

What can you do today...

If you are a parent... Love your child unconditionally. Do not let your child feel they are any less because they cannot communicate the way we do or look after themselves. Do not forget to look after yourself and your significant other. ( If you don't have one find one...There is someone out there for everyone. You deserved to be loved also). Join a church. Speak to your friends. Keep up the good fight.

If you are Friend... If you have resources please consider supporting Generation Rescue as they move the agenda towards services and support programs. If you do not have financial resources provide respite services... Babysit, go with a parent to the grocery store, or running errands. Be there to listen.

If you are in the medical community it is time to wake up and do something...
If you are in the insurance industry it is time to make the people responsible pay...
if you are in the media it time to tell the truth...
If you are in the government it is time act...
If you are in education it is time to educate...
If you are in a religious community it is time to rally the troops to support families...
If you are involved in a Autism group please invite them to join the Move to Heal Autism By 2030 (MTHA)

If you are in the New York City Office of Autism Speaks... remember that $50,000 you took from my community this fall could have helped to pay for my sons therapy this year.

If you are in contact with amanda peet and have a child with Autism invite her over to experience our lives first hand and but out of our childrens and the future of others children.

If you are impacted by autism (that means you are part of the human race) Join me in the fight. Join causecast with your own cause or mine. Make a difference in our world. now. State your change! Then make it happen.

If you happen to have some sleeping pills, sleep ideas for children with autism, or want to come spend the night let me know.... I need a nap.

Say a prayer for all those dealing or not dealing with their "Autism Like" conditions.

On Twitter #FeelAutismYet #TruthFirst #Autismabc @TannersDad

If you are in the pharmaceutical industry it is time to pray...

People it is just time to deal with Autism....

Tim, you make very poignant

Tim, you make very poignant observations on the day we celebrate our country’s freedom our children’s freedom have been taken. The number of U.S. soldiers killed in the American Revolution was 4,000. The number of children with autism taken on our war against childhood diseases is 400,000 and climbing.

We celebrate the majesty of what our founding fathers accomplished, Washington, Jefferson, et al. Will we one day also celebrate Rimland, Wakefield, and the thousands of parents who refused to surrender to an enemy better funded than King George III could ever imagine?

I believe we will. I believe the autism revolution will bring together the same type of citizen soldier (you call to action) that it took to win the American Revolution.

We will win. We have only started to fight. Our Lexington and Concord occurred when the government retreated/conceded the Poling case. The major battles are still ahead. The anti-autism forces picked a fight they cannot win.

Autism is like

Amen!!!! I pray people wake up!!! Autism is like the famous line in the classic movie "Invasion of the Body Snatchers"--"They're here already! You're next! You're next! You're next!" But no one listens!!!
