Congratulations to Temple Grandin and company

I was so pleased to watch the Emmy's last night and witness the HBO movie about Temple Grandin's life receive so many awards. I believe they won 5 of the 7 they were nominated for. I remember when I watched this movie I was just spellbound by Temple's intelligence and perseverance. I was also proud of her 1950s mother being so progressive and such an advocate for her daughter in a time when nobody really understood austism. Temple holds a Ph.D. and I believe patents, plus is the author of many books. Read a little bit about her story here: CNN Story
