Earlier this evening, on my way to a meeting, feeling miserable and in a right old state, I couldn’t get my eyes off this middle-aged man, walking down the sidewalk opposite me.
He was blind, being guided by his walking stick; no guide dog, nothing! ‘He must have walked these roads a thousand times’, I thought.
And then it hit me……as it has probably done many times in the past. However this time was different. …
Here’s a blind guy, who can’t see NOTHING!!! The beauty surrounding him, the faces, places, sights. The difficulty of meandering through busy streets, dodging fellow pedestrians, the difficulty of everyday routines etc…..I felt like ‘shyte’.
How we take for granted the things we have!!!!!!!!
Next time you try playing up, remember the blind and disabled around your world!
