The best 3 minutes you’ll spend today!! – a TOUCHING, sweet short video by 20 year old Spencer to his brother Mitchel, who has #autism. “Hey guys, here is a short video I made about what it is like for me to have an older brother with autism. I hope you enjoy it and see how blessed I am to have Mitchel as my brother,” writes Spencer Timme, a student at James Madison University, class of 2014. “I love him to death and I want everyone to see how awesome our bond is!” Says Spencer in the video: “He has this ability to make everyone around him happy. He has taught me the joy in little things. I can’t wait for him to be the best man at my wedding.” "I want to hear your stories about knowing someone with autism!" (Note: Everyone Matters slightly edited the video because there was copyright music) Tell Spencer how awesome and inspiring he is! https://www.facebook.com/spencertimme Join our community where Everyone Matters!
