“Our once great western Christian civilization is dying. If this matters to followers of Jesus Christ, then we must set aside our denominational differences and work together to strengthen the things that remain and reclaim what has been lost. Evangelicals and Catholics must stand together to re-establish that former Christian culture and moral consensus. We have the numbers and the organization but the question is this: Do we have the will to win this present spiritual battle for Jesus Christ against secularism? Will we prayerfully and cooperatively work toward a new Christian spiritual revival ― or will we choose to hunker down in our churches and denominationalisms and watch everything sink into the spiritual and moral abyss of a New Dark Age?” - Mark Davis Pickup

Carly Fleishmann is a fourteen year old girl who is mute and autistic. Many people thought she was mentally deficient or "retarded". Uncommunicative until age eleven, Carly showed the experts, and the world around her, that a bright mind lived with the autism. Her voice broke through the autism. Carly was there and keenly aware all along!  As Carly said, her brain was wired different.  In the video below we are shown, once again, not to ever discount or write off any person. Note at the 7:00 minute mark in this video profile of Carly she explains many of the behaviors and habits of people with autism. At the end of the video she says to others who have autism or are otherwise uncommunicative, "Don't give up. Your inner voice will find a way out. Mine did." Carly has something to teach us all.
