We all have people that we look up too. Sometimes they’re family or friends and sometimes they’re people on the big screen. One of my son’s hero’s is Dwayne Johnson, courtesy of the Fast and Furious movies.
So when I came across this article entitled “Dwayne Johnson Praised for Opening Up about His Battle with Depression: ‘I was crying constantly’ ” by Erin Donnelly over at Yahoo , I was reminded once again, that we all have our stories. This is definitely one I’ll share with my son.
Not two words I would have put together. This article, “Autism Didn’t Stop This Teen from Becoming Captain of his High School Football Team” by Amanda Scherker, is just another reason that we all have our niche in life and we just need to find it.
He is definitely a role model for anyone, not just those within the autism community.
I just came across his obituary today in the Sunday edition of St. Louis Post-Dispatch and while I had only met him a few times during my time on the SSD-PAC (Special School District Parent Advisory Council), I always thought he came across as very genuine.
After reading the article today, I now know that that’s true. Here’s a link to a his In Memoriam over at Special School District of St. Louis County.
Thank you John!
