Dillan Barmache gave an incredible speech during his graduation ceremony at Hale Charter Academy — but that's not even half of it.
What's super impressive is the fact that's he's autistic and he's non-verbal!!
The 14-year-old had often felt trapped inside his own body, unable to speak. With the help of an iPad and a letter board, Dillan was able to give his speech.
The whole speech reads:
She's been a busy lady in New York! And she's showing no signs of slowing down!
Demi Lovato recently made a moving speech on Thursday at The Jed Foundation's 13th Annual Gala event called The Brightest Night 2014.
The singer, who has been open about her struggles with mental illness, and who was also diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 2010, was SO inspiring throughout the whole event which was held at the River Pavillion inside the Jacob Javitz Center.
In fact, this is something everyone should listen to.
We’re somewhat hesitant to trust a woman who once threw raw meat at her stepdaughter…
But Jean Kasem, the wife of legendary radio host Casey Kasem, is fighting back yet again against her husband’s children, stating in court papers filed this week that Kerri Kasem will take Casey’s fortune and give it ALL to the Church of Scientology!
Jean also claims that Kerri owes her over a million dollars after borrowing it from her father some time ago.
We're lovin' this!
Paris Jackson has had a rough go of it in the past, but lately the lady has been looking happy and healthy!
And it's not just us who think so either!
Now THIS is interesting news!
Racist Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling has been reportedly deemed “mentally incapacitated” after being examined by two neurologists, and undergoing a CT and PET scan.
Reportedly, BOTH of these doctors decided that Sterling has Alzheimer’s, and he might have had it for the last five years!
Too bad those other racist things he did were before that, so it’s still no excuse for what he said!
This is bizarre!
PETA has uncorked a campaign that claims to have information about the link between "autism and dairy products."
Although PETA does not seem to be saying that dairy products cause autism - they are prepared to make the argument that dairy products can make autism worse.
And as Emily Willingham notes - the mere suggestion of a link is not sitting with some folks, at all. Here's what she wrote on Forbes:
What a transformation!
After spending the year working on her mental health, Amanda Bynes looked healthier and happier than ever before when she was seen leaving a Cardio Barre class in suburban El Lay.
Surely the hardcore workout is releasing an army of endorphins! Just look at that wide grin!
We know we won't be seeing her on the big screen again anytime soon, but we predict our gurl has some epic plans in her future!
After all, conquering the toughest obstacles with a smile is what makes a person extraordinary!!!
