Today was World Autism Awareness Day. People with autism often struggle to express themselves.  That truth is told powerfully with this video (because sometimes stories are told better that way):

Just because a person’s truth is being told in a way we don’t understand, doesn’t mean the truth isn’t there. If we don’t understand another’s story, the fault is not necessarily in the other. If we learn to listen in different ways, we can open ourselves up to hearing a symphony of stories–those told by the universe and those expressed by people experiencing that universe.

The truth is in there.  They are telling their stories.  We need to hear them.
