Blind Not Alone

Imagine you are in a combat zone, you suddenly are shot and lose your sight. For several fleeting moments you are alone, visually encapsulated in darkness with no idea who or what is around you.

Imagine you are walking in a store and you only hear the scuffling of feet or breathing of people around you. You cannot see them and few respond back when you say hello, making you feel alone while surrounded by others.

Imagine you are in a crowded conference hall, hearing warnings to watch out after brushing up against another rather than greetings, provoking emotions of guilt.

Each of these examples represents just some of the ways us with visual impairments encounters the world. Its through situations like these and many more where a blind individual feels alone.
