Since many of us admired Martin Luther King Jr., would you say that his famous speech, "I have a Dream", could be applied to the Autistic community's social struggle for dignity and equality?

Firstly, it's good to be in touch with you again. I really enjoyed watching this interview. I related very much to Dr Mordi, his expression of autism uncannily resembled my own. I also warmed to him enormously as a person and creative being in his own right. It is good to hear from you again too. M...

So, one of my childhood heros was Grandmaster Ed Parker, who was like a God among his people. And next to him, there was my chief instructor, whom i looked up to in many ways. I think training in Karate did help me a great deal while growing up, as not only did i learn fighting skills that i could ...
