Apologies if this story has already made it to you – I think it’s made it beyond the local news to places like Huffington Post.
Start with the original post by a mother who took her autistic daughter to the Muses parade and had some terrible things happen. Read the comments and watch the outpouring not only of love and empathy, but of people actively working to make it better.
Then enjoy this news clip that showcased what happened as a result.
When I hopped on Facebook for the first time this evening, I could see the train of posts from people I know who were part of the magic, and their own personal photo albums of the special event.
I love this city and the people who live here, and I love the Muses.
I hope you’ll take the time to click and read and watch if you missed this heartwarming story.
And since I always like to post a photo with my blog entries, in honor of the Muses and their shoes, I’ll include a photo of the shoes my mom and I wore on Mardi Gras day. Complete with cat.
