Recently in school, we conducted the Hemingway’s famous six-word tale. Basically, Hemingway claimed that he could write a great story in six words. And this is what he wrote:
For sale, baby shoes, never worn.
My kids in school absolutely loved this activity and some came up with really interesting ones. At that moment, I thought this might be a nice idea to start with the mummies in my ‘caregiver’s whats-app group’, and later on, to the community out there, be it whether you are a caregiver, educator, family member or the person living through this journey.
I think it might be difficult to expect everyone to come up with a six-word story like Hemingway, thus I am changing this to ‘Our Six-Word Journey’. Six words, six deep-rooted words, which translate how you have coped with this journey or is still coping.
Coping with autism or having a child with autism is not easy but having that support, or just knowing that you are not alone, helps to make this journey, a little easier, a little better. Join our community and walk together with us on this journey, with your six powerful words…
These six words sum up my feelings since knowing my son has autism till present. It hasn’t been an easy journey but I have to say the support and love that I have received throughout the years have definitely made it easier.
Please feel free to contribute to this page by emailing me your six-word story or journey at angelang [underscore] 77 [add] yahoo [dot] com [dot] au . Do provide your full name as well as any web address to your blog if you like to include them in this page. Thank you.
