You are so lucky to have seen her in person!
Dr. Temple Grandin was a delight to meet, and listen to. She is a person whom is not concerned with being Politically correct so as not to offend anyone. She speaks with candid honesty that is not so easy to come by any more. Her common sense approach to life was refreshing. When she wondered out loud "How can you justify paying 2500.00 for a football uniform, and take away the arts programs from our schools, and let children go hungry, it just doesn't make any sense to me." I had to smile, knowing I was listening to some good old common sense that is far behind our progressive ways of thinking these days. She is bold, and couragious, and embodies every child who has endured ridicule, and torment, and stands before us proclaiming HOPE. She says when asked if she would wish herself cured of Autism "NO, we need people who think like me." I wanted to stand up and cheer for her. Instead, I felt the tears well up inside me, and I knew that she was much more to us, than one woman standing alone on a stage, but I felt I had just wittnessed a most impprtant part of history. And I will never forget the day I stood next to such an honorable person as Temple Grandin. St. Louis, November 9th 2012.
