“I like the fact the cane is a way of saying “hey, I don’t see good, look out for me.” ~Chrissy Antonopoulos

While Chrissy has graduated to using a guide dog, we have a shared message of hope and fortitude. Do we have bad days? Most definitely, but we refuse to be kept down! We’ve learned that thriving within the sighted world means overcoming the most significant of hurdles which are the misconceptions around sight loss, blindness, and the capabilities of blind people.

“It’s about walking boldly with confidence, transcending barriers and changing the way we perceive blindness” ~Steph

  1. The truly blind are those who cannot see ability within difference.

    1. Yes indeed I totally agree with you. And I’ve not forgotten the beautiful poem you wrote and kindly allowed me to share.

      1. Thank you for deeming my words worthy of sharing and, what would life be without sharing?

      2. It was my pleasure.

  2. I think your blog is helping to accomplish your last statement. I love Chrissy’s quote too!

    1. Thank you so much. I think as more of us come out by sharing our stories we are making progress in changing some of the misconceptions.
