The president of my bike club has a saying:
Live with it, deal with it...

We generally reverse it a bit, so:
Deal with it, so you can live with it...

"Inzi made me independent. I can now walk in the streets and around objects thanks to Inzi," he s>aid.



Mr Kruger had a passion for motorcycles his whole life. After the accident he adapted to the "blind life". He can now watch movies, read books, play computer games and cook his own food. He is currently a computer programmer in Woodmead.



In his spare time he runs a web site for the blind, www.blindza. co.za, where they can find games, accessories to ease their lives or mail him for any information.
