Jump for Jeremy, Jump for Respect

My brother Jeremy is high on the Autism Spectrum Disorder, which is often not understood. Therefore, on a cold day in February 2015, I decided to jump for Jeremy and jump for respect. I jumped for respect and Jeremy because children with Autism are often misunderstood about there disorder and treated differently. However, I know in Jeremy case, he treats everyone the same, as we should too. Respecting my brother and showing him support is a important part of teaching him to respect and set an example for others in the community as well.
