Too important not to mention

This is NOT a pet or animal related post, but it's about a subject that is increasingly scaring and frustrating to me ... Autism - it's the fastest-growing developmental disability, with 1 in 150 births, now affecting 1 to 1.5 million Americans, and with a 10 - 17 % annual growth. Would you like to help in a VERY EASY way? The band, Five for Fighting, is generously donating $0.49 to Autism Speaks for each time this video is viewed. The funding goes toward research studies to help find a cure. When you have a moment, please visit the link to watch the video and pass it along to friends and family. They are aiming for 10,000 hits, but hopefully we can help to exceed that goal. What kind of a world do you want? (via)
