The Internet Attends Teen’s Birthday party after no one showed up

Hey there is power in Social Media, now imagine holding a birthday bash and the people you invited didn’t show up after making all the preparations, that is what happened to Odin – the boy with Aspergers Syndrome ( Aspergers Syndrome is an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) that is characterized by significant difficulties in social interaction and non-verbal communication, alongside restricted and repetitive patterns of behavior and interests).  To celebrate his 13th birthday, Odin Camus’ mom planned an extra-fun party, complete with bowling, balloons, and his favorite food.

    Now if I tried this, the crickets won't even attempt to turn up. Although, it's always nice when people act like decent human beings.
