Imagine spending your whole life being told you'll only be good for one thing, that your not even smart enough for the things you're good at. Then one day you grow up, and the only line of work you've ever known gets turned into some sort of political catch phrase; "Jobs Americans aren't willing to do". Imagine people who don't know you, nor ever will meet you announcing good enough, nor ever will be good enough for anything. Consider who really hates, and what really hurts.

The story about that autistic man & his councilor down in Florida had me tore up a good while. I was in special classes & wound up doing some vocational rehab instead of college or trade school, so I got to know a few people like that. I worry about their futures, & then I feel it staring back at me, and I can't help getting broken up. People don't know me. They think because I don't walk & talk like one of them, that I must be stubborn & lazy, and it hurts.
