Unfortunately we already have a blue bulb out in honor if a fallen officer we knew.  But it'll stay up the entire month if April. Someone actually mention on our garage sale site that people should live their blue lights up through Saturday not only for the officer but for Autism awareness.  It got so many negative comments it got taken down πŸ˜’...

Marcello's school is asking everyone to wear blue on Friday. Not sure if I can get him to wear a blue shirt, but I will try. It will ironic if he refuses to wear a blue shirt because he has autism.

I love that so many high profile places are participating. I have always had blue lights around because my dad is an officer and my grandad was too. Unfortunately i havent heard of anything around here saying anything about autism awareness day.
