I've read this speech a few times, but have never seen it and heard it. It gives such a powerful, good feeling, and a comforting one, to a mother who knows how much it means. Thank you for finding it!

Amazing and inspiring. My son has only just been diagnosed with Autism. I have had to face the fear that he will be mistreated and teased because of who he is. This has been so encouraging and comforting to me. Thank you for reposting it here.
