Jerrie Williams is a blogger on the Beauregard Daily News website. The name of her blog is C.O.P.E. Community Organized Parents in Education. This blog is syndicated statewide to all GateHouse websites. She will not only be blogging about local education concerns, but information about resources for parental research on different subjects concerning children and their well being. Jerrie Williams is the mother of three autistic children. Her journey began in 1999, when she discovered that her children were not developing according to the national mind stone charts. This was after they had received immunizations and developed reactions to them. She later learned the immunizations contained an agent that her children were allergic to, which led to their developmental delays. She moved her children to Georgia to be treated by a specialist in autism and brain injury in 2000. Since then she has been searching and discovering several research-based interventions and resources to educate, support and assist in the recovery of autism. She moved to Louisiana in August, 2011, and has been involved in educating the community about autism and the resources available to parents of autistic children as well as adults with autism. She has been instrumental in helping the Beauregard Parish school system to design an individualized curriculum that was suited for the educational needs of her children as well as other special needs children. Her children have since blossomed with this curriculum and continue to thrive. She will continue in her journey as a mother and an advocate for others.
They say time heals all wounds, but apparently two years is not enough to mend Sean Penn's heart. The actor, who divorced Robin Wright after fourteen years in 2010, recently opened up about marriage in an interview with Esquire. RIP Jelena and TomKat! Check out the most shocking celebrity splits"There is no shame in my saying that we all want to be loved by someone," Penn said. "As I look back over my life in romance, I don't feel I've ever had that. I have been the only one that was unaware of the fraud in a few of these circumstances blindly."Though Penn did not mention Wright by name, he acknowledged that divorce tends to expose the truth in relationships. "When you get divorced, all the truths that come out, you sit there and you go, What the f---was I doing?" Penn explained. "What was I doing believing that this person was invested in this way? Which is a fantastically strong humiliation in the best sense. It can make somebody very bitter and very hard and closed off, but I find it does the opposite to me."Penn was able to find the silver lining in the situation. Thanks to being single and having bad luck dating, Penn invested his energy in charity. "And so I go out and I strike out four nights in a row, drinking at a bar and ending up home, you know, drunk," Penn said. "And on the fourth day I said, 'I could just go sit in the middle of the bed and watch TV at four in the afternoon, too. I don't have anything.' My daughter's eighteen and she's doing her thing, my son's with his mother. So I turned on the TV and there was this earthquake in Haiti."The actor went on to spend the next two years traveling to Haiti to help with the relief effort and even set up an organization to help rebuild homes, schools and hospitals.
