Sometimes silence speaks volumes, and that was definitely the case during this incredible moment of Carmel High School’s graduation ceremony. Jack Higgins has Autism and is sensitive to loud noises, so the student body was asked not to clap or cheer when he accepted his diploma. The students stayed quiet and rose to give him a silent standing ovation. The way the students all came together to support Jack was such a powerful moment.

4-year-old Daniel has Autism and had previously been unable to speak more than four words for his entire life. Then, his mother heard him singing the lyrics to "Old Town Road" by Lil Nas X (feat. Billy Ray Cyrus) all on his own! We had an #oldtownroad miracle at my house. My son Daniel has #autism and doesn't talk. We caught him humming the @LilNasX and @billyraycyrus tune the other day. Then Bless God, my baby started singing the song on his own. His therapists have started to use it in his sessions! pic.twitter.com/vtCNWeg6ax — Sheletta Brundidge (@TwoHauteMamas1) June 4, 2019 His therapists are now using music in his sessions to help him learn. Every time I lock eyes with my baby, we start singing #oldtownroad together. Cause of his #autism, he ain't strung together four words since he was born. But when we sing #OldTownRoad, he got all @LilNasX parts DOWN and I'm rocking @billyraycyrus!
