Siblings on the Frontlines for People with Disabilities

Great piece by Cheryl Wills, longtime anchor/reporter at NY1 News, on Huffington Post.

My brother Clarence has autism. He is 41, I am 43. Many years before the influential National Alliance on Mental Illness formed in 1979, and before Mental Health America launched its powerful online community this summer, it was left to sisters and brothers of those with disabilities to put up our dukes and protect our defenseless loved ones from bullies and discrimination.
