This is Glenn Buratti, a 6-year-old from Osceola County, Florida. He has mild autism and epilepsy. Earlier this month, his mom Ashlee threw him a birthday party, inviting 16 children from his class. No one showed up.

“I know this might be something silly to rant about, but my heart is breaking for my son. We invited his whole class (16 kids) over for his 6th birthday party today. Not one kid came,” Ashlee posted on a local Facebook group.
