To @sesameworkshop from Stephanie E De Haven

If Sesame Street didn't exist, I would not be able to read. My parents were substance abusers, and I am autistic.

Thanks to Sesame Street, I was ready for school. I have a Master's degree now, and am a multiply published poet.

Autism Speaks is a hate group. So my accepting childhood teachers and friends have allied themselves with a group of people who think my life is not worth anything and my voice is nothing.

But you gave me my voice, Sesame Street. So there are no more sunny days, and I can't remember how to get to Sesame Street.
