    The band, Five for Fighting, is making a generous donation to Autism Speaks for *each time* the video is viewed.

    I hope this is ok to post here. I checked it out on Snopes and they say its valid.

    Thank you for sharing this. My 3 year old grandson (step) has autism and I see how it deeply affects the entire family.

    I sobbed.

    Travis waited 13 yrs to be diagnosed.

    Thank you.

    by the way, don't have any qualms because the group is called "Five for Fighting". They aren't in favor of fighting. It's a hockey term used to describe when a player is sent to the penalty box for five minutes for fighting.

    Good point, Sara. Maybe I should repost with a new subject line? My subjest line pretty much stinks...

    I love Five For Fighting, and have every since they released their song Superman. If you're not familiar with it, listen to it sometime. I think of Travis each and every time I hear it, and it makes me sob. easy child bought me my own copy.

    I'm sending this link to easy child, who in turn is sending it to everyone she works with at the hospital, who surely will pass it on from there.
