Thanks to the parents that have blazed the trail before us

While I was waiting at the pharmacy today, a young man came in who obviously had developmental disabilities.  He was talking loudly to himself, then started talking to some of the people waiting for their prescriptions to be filled.  I sat back and watched, curious as to how people would respond.  I was pleasantly surprised.  […]
