Autism news: One of the greatest gifts we have...
December 23, 2020

I grew up thankful for the freedoms we enjoy without fully realizing how blessed we truly were.

Think about it—in all of history, how many truly free societies existed? Rome had a republic for a time until Julius Caesar rolled in and set up his own dictatorship.

But throughout most of history, from ancient times until the 18th century, free nations were very uncommon if not unheard-of.

In 1776, all that changed. Great minds worked together to craft the U.S. Constitution, an amazing document that has worked incredibly well until today.

Recent events have made many of us more thankful than ever for the freedom that so many fought and died for—freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and, yes, the freedom to teach our children as we see fit.

And yet there are people in this world who want to change all that. But they will fail. Especially if we do what we can to stop them.

Because we have special needs children who need special care, some of us cannot join rallies or protests. But there’s always something we CAN do.

For example, we can call or write to our congressional representatives and senators.

If you are a praying person, you can also join us in prayer or even fasting for our leaders and for the freedom we hold dear.

Christmas is a time of peace, joy and thankfulness. And we should celebrate the true meaning of Christmas.

But this season is also a crucial time in the history of the world. If you can, please join us in prayer for our nation and for our world.

I'm expecting this Christmas to be one of the happiest we’ve ever had. I wish you and your family all the best this holiday season!

Warm Regards,

Kay Donato
