I think it's amazing that we've all come together like this. It's a horrible situation, but I've never seen so much activity from this group. It's ok to talk about this as long as you need to. Even though people have clearly come out and said that Asperger's had nothing to do with it, they haven't given an alternative reason why it did happen and people need answers. Without anything to latch onto, I think some people will continue to blame Asperger's and Autism. Our fight isn't over yet. Even after this tragedy has been pushed to the back of our collective minds, we still have a long way to go to find acceptance and understanding from people who think there's something wrong with us. And what is this group for if not to provide us with a place to speak openly to people who can understand us, because they are like us? Let's not discourage this open conversation, but embrace it as a way of finding our voices and taking a stand when we otherwise would not have the courage to do so.
