“Everybody, including people with disabilities, makes assumptions. Problems arise when we are not open to learning our assumption was wrong.” ~Libby Thaw, www.checkeredeye.com

My friend and fellow advocate Libby Thaw said the above words several years ago. Today, her quote is still one of my all-time favorites because it speaks to the heart of our humanity—judgment. Libby, founder of the Checkered Eye Project works tirelessly to expand awareness of low vision.

As people we are not immune to making assumptions or mistakes, it’s part of our DNA as humans. Through careful, honest, and frequent self-assessment we can become better people. When we take the time to learn other people’s stories, this is the first step to increasing our understanding.
