March is National Autism Awareness Month

Donald Gray Triplett was born in 1933 in Forest Mississippi. He was also the Case 1 of autism. Ever since then an estimate of 7.3 million people have been diagnosed with autism. So many people have experience in what people with autism have to go through you can wear blue. National Autism Awareness Month is similar to National Women's Month, they are both recognized as months designated for awareness of a subject, but they both have one specific day. National Women's month has national women's day, National Autism month has 1 day also designated 1 day for awareness of autism. Across America “Light it up blue” is annually celebrated on April 2 to show awareness for autism by wearing blue and telling the organization “Autism Speaks” their story with autism. This month I challenge you to wear the color blue to promote awareness of autism?
