Holly Robinson Peete says she wishes that John Travolta would have spoken up sooner about his son’s condition.
Her 12-year-old son Rodney Jr is autistic as well. She said, “Were there times I said to myself, Ooh, if somebody that A-list comes out, what could he do for the movement? Yeah, I wished that. I don’t blame the Travoltas for not talking about it. I would never tell someone what to say about their kid. The fact that posthumously he had to say that on the stand, I wasn’t glad about it. But I was relieved he was able to have closure.”
It has to be a difficult thing to have to make that decision, but sometimes you have to suck it up and go for broke. It’s the whole good of the many outweighs the good of the one.
Seriously though. I don’t have any idea of what I would do. Though I think any religion that doesn’t accept your child’s disease or condition is a little harsh.
