Michael John Carley of GRASP, the Global Regional Asperger Syndrome Partnership, has issued a statement on the Newtown Connecticut shootings: Statement from Michael John Carley on the Newtown, CT Shootings. He begins:
We here at GRASP (and I as the father of two school-age boys), cannot be more saddened and devastated by the news of the shootings in Newtown, CT. Our thoughts, wishes, prayers, and heaviest hearts go out to the victims and their families
And urges all to “…please steer away from getting too caught up in the spectrum angle. Let us focus instead on mourning; lamenting through grief that such a terrible and tragic event befell us all on this awful, awful day.”
