The photographic memory of Stephen Wiltshire
Can you imagine a memory that can photograph the eternal city of Rome?
He was born autistic.
He didn't speak his first word until he was five.
He lives in a world of his own.
His nickname is The Living Camera.
Stephen Wiltshire is a star among savant.
He can draw from sight panoramic scenes with terrific accuracy after a ride in an helicopter.
Isn't it unusual that a person born autistic can do such a miracle?
I remember teaching autistic children when I was at the University of Ottawa. They loved to exercise. In fact I volunteered to help them be more independent. Never in my whole life could I have known that my physiotherapy teacher had an autistic child.
I learned a lesson.
In each one of us we have a special gift. It is our duty to help others with it and to share it with others.
