I am aware its already the month of May and I am not sure why I cant finished writing this simple post which supposedly for autism awareness month in April.
Lets share our knowledge and at the same time..learn more about autism not only in April but anytime throughout the years.
Here what I have been writing and how we celebrated our autism awareness month this year.
The Month of April
The United Nations-sanctioned World Autism Awareness Day on April 2nd every year and the whole world celebrates April as World Autism Awareness Month.
April is a special months to understand and learn more about autism. Autism-friendly events and educational activities take place throughout the month to increase understanding and acceptance and foster worldwide support.
Light it up Blue!
I don’t really have plan for Autism Awareness day or Month for this year except for collecting pictures from friends and families wearing blue attire as support to the special occassion besides sharing information in the social media.
Music bring us together
Its just sad that the world today is facing difficulties fighting the invisible enemies, Covid-19. And just like most part of the world, Malaysia implemented control order (MCO) whereas everyone has to stay home.
Being at home, not much to do I got inspired by many compilation music videos i have received and seen in social media. I thought to myself..’why not do something different this time?”
I was searching for the right song and I have a dream by ABBA seems to be perfect. It has beautiful and meaningful lyric.
I started asking friends and family who wants to join and do the video with me and gave them their line to sing. Some say yes immediately and i keep on searching and asking those who are willing.
At the same time I asked others for their picture wearing blue for the photos collections. I must say i never felt asking for support such as requesting photos can be difficult, a friend even told me she don’t have any family on the spectrum. Or its just a simple miscommunication, probably need a formal request in the future.
I have been rejected in terms of businesses proposal but never simple request like this. But i determined to do this project, not only for my teenage son but also for everyone on the spectrum.
When emotions runs high
Have you ever felt so smart yet stupid at the same time? It happened when I tried my luck asking our Malaysian legendary singer, Ms. Francissca Peter to collaborate. What was I thinking? I wasnt sure if she agreed at that time.
Everyone started sending in their videos including Ms. Francissca Peter. I was so excited and worried at the same time.
Making the video was the best learning experience, as it can be frustruating sometimes especially when I cant figure out how, why and what about the video editing. Its a try and error method, and as a result it is a beautiful video I ever created.
I have a dream
I have a dream, you have a dream…lets make it come true!
Enjoy this simple yet meaningful video💙💙💙
