Autism needs a Martin Luther King Jr.


By Lisa Ackerman

Martin Luther King Jr. means something special to this generation as he did to the ones before us. He was a true inspiration that continues to inspire many today.

This past week was his birthday. Children in school get a holiday in his honor. Adults should re-read some of his speeches and be reminded of his leadership (1.)

I look at Martin Luther King Jr almost everyday. Some heroes help guide me every day (2.) We all need some inspiration to drive missions forward.

Even decades later his iconic speeches have a way to motivate individuals to positive action. These speeches and important messages are greatly missed. What this world today needs is another Martin Luther King Jr. Selfishly I want this new icon something like Martin Luther to focus on autism.

Happy birthday Martin Luther. Thanks for making a path.

  1. May I simply say what a comfort to uncover an individual who genuinely understands what they
    are talking about online. You definitely understand how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
    More and more people must read this and understand this side of the story.
    I was surprised you aren’t more popular given
    that you most certainly possess the gift.
