Martha asked why? A prejudicial society? My view?


Originally posted on Tell It Once And For Autism:
Martha you asked why?  Why does society act the way it does.  It is sad but out society still sees color, disability and social class as a way to judge people! We live a cruel world.  It is seen all over the media when a report…
