There was a good turnout for Wilma's presentation, titled My Journey from Sight to Blindness. Wilma gave a very honest account of how her life changed when she started becoming visually impaired. Wilma's speech was was very empowering, emphasizing the need for facing your fears and maintaining your independence. The audience was very moved by the story of her journey. Thank you, Wilma for sharing your life story with us!
Please help us spread the word about the Support Group for the Visually Impaired that Wilma is trying to form. She has a strong desire to help others who are losing their sight. If enough of us talk about it, eventually the word will get to someone who could use the help!
And don't forget that today at 2 pm to 4 pm Wilma will be at the library to help anyone interested learn to write their name in Braille. Kids could do this too as long as they are old enough to use a stylus and can follow instructions. It took me about 1/2 hour to learn to write my name in Braille and it was a very interesting process! If you miss today, she will be back again on Tuesday, October 24th from 2 pm to 4 pm for another Braille demonstration.
