Today we focus upon a group of people who face serious hardships in life. From bullying, unemployment, addictions and incarceration. A group who, through no fault of their own, face diminished outcomes in the workplace & family life.

and so today its not so much ...
- LGBT
- BLM
- Women's rights

but a group who are often overlooked. I do not recall the Premier League waving their rainbow flags or taking the knee for neurodiversity.

Economic disadvantage, discrimination, problems with the justice system, the workplace, health & life expectancy.

Perhaps the next crusade should be Autism Lives Matter ?

 


from the Etihad, Emirates, Molyneux, London Stadium, the Vitality, turf moor & Anfield to Old Trafford x 2.....or a neighbourly visit to Craven Cottage...Raptors on the Road

Nobody seems to have picked up on your post PV, but you're right to raise the subject.

Autism must be very difficult to live with, either as a sufferer or a carer. Sometimes treated with suspicion, but these folk are often bright in a specific area.

I remember a young, autistic, black guy who was a brilliant artist. He could (probably still can) see a building once and then draw an exact copy from memory.

And the character played by Christian Bale in The Big Short. True story. An incredible mathematician and autistic as I recall. He forecast the financial crisis of 2008.

Yep, good to think of this issue for a bit.

 


Dad and I would watch games on the muddy slope of the Holmesdale Road end, probably at the same time as Roy.

My stepson is severely autistic. There are many in the same situation. It's hard to live with.

 


I used to put the manager's name in front of Red and Blue but got fed up with changing it. If someone cool becomes our manager then maybe..

Red and Blue Army!

Oh dear. Sorry to hear that. But well done for telling us. Stay strong.

Thanks. It's just life these days. What can you do? It seems pretty common so would imagine there are plenty of people on these boards affected by it.

Yep, guess you're right. Life can be cruel but you have to do exactly what you're doing, just get on with it.

There are plenty of folk much worse off and it makes you thankful for what you've got.

Enjoy your Easter and look for a win on Monday.
