    I love the above fear quote, “if you don’t do what i say- I have no power.’ I too, see and experience enormous courage among my patients who face such difficulties at times. I am fortunatate with the work I do.

    Keep up the good work, Bill. It is compeling reading about these stories.

    I have been working in special education for the past 15 years. In my world there are only exta-ordinary people doing ordinary things. I have witnessed miracles everyday seen in the power of the human spirit to live a life greater than self.

    In the ongoing struggle to make sense of complex neurological disorders like Autism, teachers must transcend self in order to climb the long steep mountain of progress.

    Yesterday, I witnessed a teacher get hit in the face during a student outburst. Within minutes of collecting herself, wiping off the blood from her mouth she says “can I go back in and continue working with him?”. I saw her this morning and asked how she was doing. With the same passion and determination in her eyes she says “awesome”

    I am blessed to work everyday with extra-ordinary people doing, what they would consider, an ordinary things.

    Proud of you Bill – keep up the great work. You are an inspiration to us all! thanks for inspiring this post.
