I want to write about something that happened last night. We went to meet Sarah at Kmart. They were closed so then we decided to go to Walmart, BIG mistake.
As everyone knows there are tell tale signs of when a person diagnosed with Autism is having a hard time and about to go into behaviors. Unfortunately last night we did not heed the signs.
Most of the time when these things happen we get the usual dirty looks and snide comments. As we were trying to get Sarah up off the floor and protect her a man by the name of Paul came up to us and offered to help. He stated that he was an Army Medic and knew how to deal with crisis situations.
Paul was able to help us reason with Sarah enough to get her into the electric cart that Walmart provides and get her out to the van. Thank you and God Bless You Paul. You went above and beyond. There are not very many people that have offered to help in situations like ours. I thank God that you (Paul) were there to help us last night.
