10-year-old Benjamin Giroux is one of the millions of children who live with Autism. His class was recently given an assignment to write a poem titled “I am.”
“I am odd. I am new. I wonder if you are too,” Giroux writes. The poem spotlights what it feels for a child living with autism and brought his parents to tears. They shared it with the world through the National Autism Association’s Facebook page and it immediately went viral.
When you read the poem you’ll instantly see why it touched the hearts of so many people. I couldn’t make it through the poem without tears running down my face.
