Hold On

Hold on to what is good even if it is
a handful of earth.
Hold on to what you believe even if it is
a tree which stands by itself.
Hold on to what you must do even if it is
a long way from here...
Hold on to my hand even when
I have gone away from you.
-- Nancy Wood, from Many Winters

A question regarding your "pox" blog. You said in the UK children do not get vaccinated for cp.
Is there a much autism in the UK?
Some test seem to point toward the cp vaccine as a factor in this awful childhood affliction.

By the way nice thoughts on holding on.

I really like this little poem!

There is autism in the UK but no more or less statistically than in the USA. A good friend of ours has an autistic son and he did not have the cp vaccine.
