SOO HILL - When Jenny Schiltz takes part in the "Walk a Mile In My Shoes" handicap awareness event at the Delta Plaza Mall on Saturday, she will be offering a unique keepsake that symbolizes her struggle as a young woman with autism - jigsaw puzzle pieces. The three puzzle pieces are glued together and attached to a pin and suitable for wearing as a symbol of support for those who deal with autism in their lives every day. Along with the autism awareness pin is the message, "Like someone with Autism," which best describes the mystery and complexity of autism.
