Kelly Jude Melerine author behind Squeeze The Spaceman Taco has once again managed to move me with his post on the innocence of a child. In this case, his own young adult child Cade, who doesn’t, wouldn’t and possibly couldn’t exemplify hate.
Cade is turning 20 next month and his Dad, Kelly is one hell of an inspiring dad who shares his trials and tribulations of how autism affects the entire household and what a family does to stay strong. In Kelly’s words:
So here’s to the beauty of a child’s innocence. To Cade, skin pigmentation is of no significance. To Cade, we’re all the same. My son has no preconceived judgment of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, sexuality nor disability. We are all just nineteen years old in the eyes of my son.
What would you do differently if you had the chance to be nineteen again? Everyday my son makes me strive to be a better person.
