Lighting It Up Blue

[tweetmeme source=”luau” only_single=false http://www.URL.com]

Today is World Autism Awareness Day. Although awareness is not the goal, it is the means to get us there. I would like to thank each and every one of you who lent words of support, left comments on my wife’s letter to the president and went out and lit it up blue last night.

I am sorry to say that we did not succeed in getting the White House to do the same. We did get President Obama to say —>THIS<—, and the White House did contact my wife for —>THIS<—, but we were really hoping for —>THIS<—.

Thank you again for your time and effort. I’m sorry we could not make it happen.

For those that lit it up blue last night, I hope you will consider leaving your lights like that until the end of the month.

A couple of days ago, my wife was asked to write a letter to the President…yes, that President!

The point of the letter was to tell President Obama why she thought that he needs to light the White House blue on April 2nd in support of World Autism Awareness Day.

She did a fabulous job.

Ideally, there will be enough comments left in the comments section of this letter that our President will feel compelled to do it.

I’ve been reading through the comments though…so many. I have noticed that the voices are mostly those of mothers, sisters, aunts and grandmothers…where are my fellow fathers, brothers, uncles and grandfathers? Come on guys! Your lives are just as affected and your voices can be just as effective.

Please read her letter and leave a comment —>HERE<— and tell President Obama to light it up blue!
