A New Perspective ...

Today in class we traveled to the Industries of the Blind, Inc. of Greensboro, NC.

The company mission is, "to provide opportunities for employment and personal development for people who are blind or visually impaired to achieve greater independence."

While touring the building we were all introduced to an environment we would have never otherwise thought of. Firstly, there are so many different categories under the title "legally blind." Some workers have  Diabetic Retinopathy, Macular Degeneration, Retinitis Pigmentosa, Glaucoma, and some are completely blind. It was an amazing visit and an opportunity to engage with so many different people.
