"When is the last time you recognized the good in others and said something about it? It’s oftentimes far too easy to focus on the bad.

Mom Writes Thank You Letter To Her Autistic Son   s Classmates

We are inundated with stories of wrongdoing, posts complaining about bad service, or news stories covering tragic events around the world, but when the good stuff happens, where are the stories then?

Mother to one autistic child in seventh grade, and creator of the blog “Quirks and Chaos”, Lisa Fish Smith decided it was high time the world heard about a little good, and wrote publicly about something she was grateful for.

Smith’s son Tate was born with autism.

Growing up in a small town, Tate was surrounded by many of the same boys and girls from a very young age up through his current schooling at Baldwin City Junior High.

Because of this, his fellow students of the class of 2020 were used to his condition and had become accustomed to helping him fit in as best he could with the other kids. They even volunteered their time to sit with him and participate in a lunch-buddy program set up by the school.

Taking a moment to recognize their kindness and dedication to improving Tate’s experience integrating with the rest of the class, Smith wrote an open thank-you letter to the kids explaining just how grateful she was that her son had classmates like them. She talks about how wonderful they are to give Tate attention and friendship, even when sometimes he’s not able to reciprocate their warmth due to his condition.

She writes, “For this, I thank them. I thank these students for being kind to Tate and for making his life easier. I thank these students for making my life easier.”

We love to see stories like this that show the good of the human spirit and for reminding us how important it is to look out for one another".

What a touching history! Let's share this!
