I could never imagine not having sight. The idea of it kind of freaks me out. Yet, all around the world there are thousands of people that are without it. For them, blindness is how life is. It’s not weird or scary – it’s just is what it is. In fact, I believe that if they all of a sudden they COULD see – THAT may be freaky for them….at least at first.
I feel that some of us take the amazing senses that we have for granted. Think about what it would be like not to see, taste, smell or touch. Since most of us can do all of those things, we sometimes forget how amazing it is!
For all that there is to complain about, think about all there is to be thankful for. For a unique perspective on this, Tommy Edison, who has been blind since birth, created this video to try to explain his understanding of what it’s like to see.
