Blindness and the Fear.

Blogger Barry: I extracted some of Daniel Kish’s excellent
thinking, mixed in some of my own thoughts and have put them down
as follows.

It is other peoples impressions about blindness which are far more
threatening to blind people than the blindness itself.

Think for a moment about your own impressions of blindness. Think
about your reactions when you first meet me. Or the prospect of
your own blindness, or a loved one going blind.

The terror is incomprehensible to most of us. Because blindness is
thought to epitomise ignorance and unawareness. Hapless exposure
to the ravages of the dark unknown. How Poetic is that?

Fortunately I am not poetic, more inclined to be pragmatic. I
understand ignorance and fear are but matters of the mind… and
the mind is highly pliable and adaptable.

Fear immobilises us in the face of challenge and blindness is a
significant challenge.

Blind people should not be raised with fear. They should be raised
with freedom before all else. I believe that young blind people
should grow up to enjoy the same freedoms and responsiblities as
everyone else.
