(WXYZ) — April is National Autism Awareness Month, and one Metro Detroit man has a message for all of us.

The local 29-year-old, an artist, was inspired to do something special and creative, to spread love and stop the spread of hate that’s been running rampant across the country.

"With my autism and last year, when COVID hit, it really made me so sad," said Samuel Morris.

His movement is called "Let your Heartshine." It means to spread light everywhere.

Morris created shirts with the slogan and an image of a heart and sun shining with two people hugging on the inside. He said the background represents the dark times, but the image represents the lighter times that he believes are ahead.

"I want people to feel love when they wear my shirts," he said.

The Anti-Defamation League and Morris have partnered up to share the love.

7 Action News Reporter Andrea Isom met up with him and one of his supporters.
