Me and my girl and boy, raising awareness and acceptance of autism

Today’s “Music Monday” is an incredibly beautiful, moving song.

It’s so powerful that I don’t think it needs me to blather on about how appropriate it is, how any parent would identify with it.

To listen to it, please click here for a link..

The lyrics alone are stunning:

“How many mountains must you face before you learn to climb?
I’m gonna give you what it takes, my universal child.

I’m gonna try to find a way to keep you safe from harm.
I’m gonna build a special place, a shelter from the storm.
And I can see you, you’re ev’rywhere, your portrait fills the sky.
I’m gonna wrap my arms ’round you, my universal child.

And when I look into your eyes, so innocent and pure,
I see the shadows of the things that you’ve had to endure.
I see the tracks of ev’ry tear that ran right down your face.
I see the hurt, I see the pain, I see the human race.
And I can feel you, you’re ev’rywhere, shining like the sun.
I wish to God that kids like you could be like ev’ryone.

How many tumbles must it take before you learn to fly?
I’m going to help you spread your wings, my universal child.

I’m gonna help you to find a way to keep you safe from harm.
We’re gonna build a special place, a shelter from the storm.
I can feel you, you’re ev’rywhere, shining like the sun.
I wish to God that kids like you could be like ev’ryone.
And I wish to God that kids like you could be like ev’ryone.”
