Other myths we might as well shatter include the one unfortunately about blind people not being bigots because they canot see skin color. I also doubt stories about blind people being more honest than the rest of society. I do think the belief that we are angry and frustrated is true but that is because so much of what makes being blind difficult comes from things other than actually having no sight. For instance if we had decent public transportation in this country more disabled people might be able to work. Living poor is harder than having a job and being productive. Being productive is a definite mood enhancer. I wax a bit sarcastic but the idea is meant truly. It is my sense of humor I find I sometimes lack in these situations. This list reminds me of humor and I do appreciate all of you. By the way I never ever have asked somebody to feel his or her face and find the request offends my sense of courtesy.
By the way, it is sneeting here that is snowing and sleeting at the same time. Please send good wishes for the power to stay on.
