High Coo – August 29 – Happy Birthday Temple Grandin


Temple Grandin was born today in 1947. She is known as an American animal behaviorist an autism spokesperson.

No one is perfect: no one. Perfection is a concept, while reality is messy, life is diverse and vive la difference.

There’s a provocative video where Temple describes her life as a person with autism and how she has learned to overcome bullying and be a contributor to society through her work for more humane treatment of animals. It’s inspiring, controversial and I encourage you to watch it if you can. See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C8xaW84b7U8

Here’s today’s haiku: Happy Birthday Temple Grandin
