We represent the full microcosm of the World, of the human experience; some of which are great, others less so. But what I believe is that, given proper training and opportunity, blind and visually impaired people can enjoy the world’s treasures and add to them by our own unique experiences. I believe that its OK to be blind.” – Daniel Frye, Director – New Jersey Commission for the Blind.
I believe that blindness does not necessarily equate to lack of opportunity or tragedy.
I believe I believe that success can be realized in the dark.
I believe that the absence of light has no bearing on the ability of people to succeed.
I believe in literacy, literacy without light.
I believe in the ability for independent travel, independent travel without light.
I believe in the ability of blind people to compete competitively in the public job market, without light.
I believe I believe in blind people’s ability to think, and participate, and give back in the world in which they live, a world for them that has no light.
I believe in blind people’s ability to participate in all aspects of living.
