Sometimes, a story captures, touches and inspires.  Today, for me, it was this one.

This tells the story of twin women who have autism and area also brilliant savants.  Perhaps this hit me because I have worked with families who have kids with autism for a number of years, and so personally feel attached and sometimes fascinated by the challenges that people live with.  Perhaps it was because the story of their lives - from sheltered and mis-understood childhood's to finding enjoyment and some independence as adults - shows an arc of determination and growth that is inspiring.

Anyway, it's a bit long, but well worth the watch.

What do you think?  Oh, and... any Dick Clark fans out there?
