The children exposed to high levels of lead-laced drinking water from Michigan's Flint River are entering schools now and the school system is straining to meet their special education needs. #SaveFlintChallenge #FlintWaterCrisis #AmericaHasAWaterCrisis edwk.it/2PiqNdZ
I'm in tears. The government did this to innocent kids. #SaveFlintChallenge #FlintWaterCrisis
I watch celebrities and politicians ignore Flint day after day, like it's no big deal. Like it's over.

Truth is, so many kids were poisoned in Flint, Michigan, that it won't be over until they all grow old and die. Lead poisoning damages the brain, kidneys, and bone marrow.
Even low levels of lead exposure can cause health problems. This includes attention deficits, behavior problems, learning difficulties and decreased IQ in young children.

Our government crippled innocent children for life, and continues to ignore the Flint water crisis. I won't.
I work with kids, so my passion runs deep, just like my understanding of how these families are affected overall. Learning disabilities in kids creates an entirely different world of obstacles, care, and bills. And the most disgusting thing is, they poisoned a poor city.
If any Flint parent is reading this, please know we will fight with you and for you, until the end of time. Some of the most loving & caring people I've ever met in life, have been autistic kids. Saying that to say-through this madness, Flint will survive. Never give up.
