    The movie about her life was exceptional – just like Temple herself. There were so many high points, but one of the most memorable was when she was attending a seminar on autism, and spoke up from the audience when she disagreed with with the speaker. The audience wanted to hear more from her, and one person asked, “How were you cured?” Temple scoffed at that, and responded, “I’m not cured; I’ll always be autistic.” Such a strong person to have overcome so much adversity but soldiered on against all odds.
