Growing Old with Autism Story from Time

Very heartfelt and thought-inspiring article from the latest issue (cover below) of Time Magazine.

Written by Karl Taro Greenfeld, "Growing Old with Autism" is in an excerpt from his book "Boy Alone: a Brother's Memoir" about the struggles associated with his adult brother's autism. It's somewhat painful in that it makes you think of the circumstances that some are dealt and also how that impacts their loved ones.

On a much lighter level, the last page essay by Joel Stein is titled "Give Hockey (and Me) One More Shot"... yea, it's an entertaining read.
