~~ There's a wonderful young man out there named Stephen Wiltshire. The
amazing thing about Stephen isn't his memory and drawing
ability---although they are remarkable beyond words!
It's his childhood. He obviously didn't fit the mold. All he wanted to
do was draw---that's where he found comfort and where he excelled. But
that's all fine and dandy--AFTER he's done his "normal" work. In order
to get his drawing notebook, he would have to jump through a bunch of
school hoops. THEN he was allowed to draw. His childhood was
horrendous---all those folks trying to make him fit in and be "normal."
I couldn't find the video/article I first saw about him. In it his
childhood is discussed. The newer ones gloss over his school years.
How I wish he was celebrated for Who He Was when he was a *child*.~~
