Temple Grandin and Like Stars on Earth

Spurred from a conversation while we were hiking, my friend recently lent me 2 DVDs, Temple Grandin (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1278469/) and Like Stars on Earth (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0986264/). To give a little background, my friend works with autistic and special needs children (forgive me if I am politically incorrect) and her stories always amaze me. First, I have a hard time conjuring up the patience to do what she does and therefore, I admire her and those in her field A LOT. Second, listening to (and understanding) her perspective is a real eye opening exercise for me as I begin to understand the world I do not know. There is such a diverse range of interesting and beautiful people in this world and to simply congregate with and understand those similar to ourselves is a tragedy. After watching these 2 movies, my admiration for her and her colleagues went up a million notches. Watch them and tell me if you didn't shed a tear...
