The following is a transcript of a speech written and presented by me, on March 1, 2018, at the Disability Day Of Mourning vigil that was hosted by Canadian Autistics United in New Westminster, BC. TW for filicide, murder, violent ableism.

A stale Ritz cracker, painted on one side with fuschia nail polish. I was eleven-years-old and my best friend at the time could be a bit
