What does it mean when someone says you are special?
For me, all it means , I am a special mom! Why? Thanks to my lovely autistic kid, if not for him I would just be another mom!
Not a single day goes without learning something new, today “Whatever I am ” is because of him , its not an exaggeration but a fact. Education made me literate, my parents taught me to be cultured and respectful, my friends taught me what a support group can do, but my son made me complete. He showed me there is another path in life – untouched and not many dare to come , but its so pleasant and peaceful out there. People here are not judged by money and fame , but they know how to be happy in their own world!
I am not going to write about how he was diagnosed, and what is his everyday routine is, every special kids parent knows what we go through raising a kid with special needs!
But my thoughts for the day – “how would the world be with just special kids”- so called differently abled! There you go, the thought clearly means the world is going to be extra special!
Do you think there will be a need for an army and a boundary definition! No, when people start doing their own business without poking into others life there is not going to be any differences as rich, poor, black, white, north and south! Trust me, World will be quieter, I am not talking about going back to stone age, but change the mind set, for years we have been taught to study and earn and then lead a happy life .. does this always have to be in this order. Can we not be happy and learn things through experience and earn just for living.
No one is going to be worried if you have 2 cars or 3 cars / what you do for living? What next! Nothing!
Everyone will live for the minute and I bet that’s the happiest moment of all times!
The unconditional love will be spread everywhere, do you think these lovely souls even know what greediness is? No sarcasm, no jealously, no unwanted jibber jabber , no manipulation, no norms to live in a society, just mind your own business and above all doesn’t bother what other people think or does!
They can only speak their mind in different ways, may be!
What about some of the special people s aggressive behavior, is that your question, I bet most of it is caused only because they knew they are different and when society demands for certain decorum to be followed , they can’t do it and end up showing their anger differently!
Who charted out these social decorum?? What if you can’t use words to communicate, nor what if they can’t have eye contact, they still communicate their needs and affection in their own special way!
My point here is ” I wish no more special kids are born” but every kid can be let to be on their own special way , do not force them to follow your social norms and make them as machines. Let them think freely, be creative and show them way to lead a simple contended life!
Life is very beautiful and these pristine special hearts know that very well and lead a happy life no matter whatever comes on their way!
The world without violence, no differences by color, creed, language, religion absolutely nothing but love and affection!
Won’t you call this ideal world as special! Thats everyone s Utopia come true !
