…and both Gartrell and McDaniels want you to push Left with the Dead on everyone you know, because all proceeds for this month will be donated to Autism Speaks. The crusty first sergeant might have failed in his mission, but you can complete yours, and without fighting the dead. Autism is everywhere, folks. Do what you can to help the professionals figure it out, so parents with those afflicted might one day find some respite from the constant worry that always gnaws at them. And bonus points for helping those who have fallen victim to the disorder, as well!

For myself, my little boy was diagnosed with autism when he was about three. He doesn’t speak, has some emotional distress conditions, but he’s beautiful and happy. Poppa Knight and Momma Knight ship him off to the best schools in the area, and we keep him growing and learning as best as we can. Despite everything we do, though, his road will be a hard one. So give a kid a hand and tell folks there’s this little book out there that might add some pennies to the war effort, eh?

I don’t normally post personal pictures and the like here, but I’ll bust open the piggy bank this time. Say hello to my son, Brian.
