Working at Visions has shown me just how much we miss out on when the everyday person ignores someone who is visually impaired. When I'd see someone walking with a cane and dark sunglasses, I'd avoid them because I didn't know how to interact with them. Visions has taught me that these people are really just like the rest of us and that treating them the way you'd want to be treated is the best thing we can do for them. All the seniors I've visited and talked to at Visions have their own story to tell and are by far the most interesting people I have ever met. Most of these people I would've ignored had I passed by them in the street. So next time when I see a person walking with a cane and wearing dark sunglasses, or even just an elderly person, walking up to them and asking if they'd like help won't be as daunting as it used to be. I know what to do now, and Visions has given me the courage and knowledge to do it. Thank you Visions for showing me this, and for caring and providing for the visually impaired as no others but their own family have.
