Police are now looking for the sick-minded person who sent a threatening letter to the grandmother of an autistic boy in Ontario suggesting she have the 13-year-old euthanized.
Of course it was an anonymous letter because the letter-writer is nothing more than a narrow-minded coward.
Brenda Millson of Newscastle, Ontario says she was shocked when she read the letter. The person who wrote it claimed to be a mother who lives in the neighbourhood and was upset at the noises Millson's grandson Max made when he was outside.
But allow me to tell you a quick story about my neighbors when my son was getting ABA therapy after he was diagnosed with autism.
Here's what happened; a therapist came to our home and was literally modifying the behavior of my son. And that is not as easy task. It involved him crying a lot to get him to change some of his ways. It was very difficult to deal with.
But it was necessary and it worked.
And we never had any of our neighbors complain. In fact, they loved seeing my son running around and playing. (By the way, ABA is a wonderful method therapists use to treat kids with autism).
I feel sorry for the kids of that person who sent the letter. They have a mean-spirited and dangerous-sounding person living in their household. Here's hoping the authorities track down the letter-writer as quickly as possible.
