Has Dr. Suess ever made you cry? We'll there's a fist time for everything. Today I took the kids to see "Horton Hears a Who."
I am obviously completely obsessed with Rett Syndrome, because this movie is about OUR GIRLS! No, I am not high on chocolate eggs....I was bawling when all the little Whos in Whoville were shouting out "We are here!" and no one in the jungle could hear them, except Horton...because of his big ears.
No one can hear our girls. That "jungle" world out there is whizzing around so fast, they don't know we exist -- how special these girls are, even if they are just a "speck" in the grand pile of problems people are facing.
We need to get louder, folks! We need a Horton to hear us and tell the world. Research on Rett Syndrome is further along than most other disorders. It is the Rosetta Stone of all neurological disorders. Our girls are saveable. There is so much hope! We need to shout it from the rooftops!
And as a back up, I plan to appeal to Horton as well. I mean, why not dream a little that a huge cartoon pachyderm might come through?
Horton! We are here! We are here!
A person is a person no matter how small..... a voice is a voice no matter how small.
