This is the official blog of the Autism Hall of Fame (Awetism Hall of Fame)


Art against Bullying

October is Anti-Bullying month, and we would like to contribute by creating an art gallery with art by autistic people that expresses the feelings (fear, anger, etc.) that bullying may cause. October 10 is also Mental Health Day, and we can certainly see a connection because bullying does cause mental health problems, so we can connect the two issues in our art gallery, although the main focus remains bullying. Bullying is bad and bullies are not strong. They are cowards.

We welcome contributions from both members of the Autism Hall of Fame and other autistic people. Please contact us at ahof_ceos at aol dot com if you wish to submit.

The deadline is September 20.

Thank you!

October Is Anti-Bullying Month

As October is just round the corner, we would like to remind you all that October is anti-bullying month.

Bullying is a very serious issue for some of us. It can traumatize us for life or even kill. It is not a game and it is not something that should be ignored. It is absolutely incomprehensible to us how some people in charge and even some doctors can ignore it – until it is too late.

Spread the word, spread awareness. Love, not bullying, is the answer. If only those who bully others because they are dissatisfied with their own lives understood how much better they would feel if they tried to love those who are different and are even more in need of love.

It is a beautifully sad season (fall/autumn), a season to reflect on these issues.

Everybody should say NO to bullying!

And please, if you are bullied don’t keep it for yourself. There are also people who want to help you. If you wish to talk to us, you are very welcome to write to us too of course. We are your friends.
