Huillo is a lucky boy. Luis is a lucky dad. And I am lucky my words brought them to me. #todossomoshuillo
Building a bridge to Mexico
I don’t typically post videos, nor content from others, but I was moved by a recent email from Luis Vazquez. Luis introduced me to his son Huillo through this video, while telling me he found my infographics helpful. At the time, I replied and posted it to the Living Amongst Humans Facebook page and similarly on Twitter. Today I decided to copy it to the main Living Amongst Humans site.
Coldplay shared the video with their almost 17 million Twitter followers, along with the caption: “This kind of thing makes it all worthwhile.” The Washington Post covered it. Clearly, I am not going to appreciably increase this video’s reach, but it is worthwhile — personally, at least — to capture the event.
Humans can mistake autistic people having difficulty reading or expressing emotions as not having emotions. Let this video put the lie to that.
