This Friday I want to share my blind husband’s award speech, which has been circulating mostly on self-help and therapy web sites for its inspirational message.
While this is a professional blog, from time to time I feel the need to support worthy causes. Of course, I’m biased toward a particular project – my blind husband’s first feature film.
This week I was accused of being a surrogate for my blind husband’s work.
What we can do is limited only by our drive to succeed. Despite all the feel-good stories – most popularly told to us via YouTube videos – we, as humans, still tend to make excuses for not even taking a chance. When I’m met with naysaying about a blind guy’s own efforts to direct a feature film, I’m utterly confused. Nothing is impossible.
I watched the f8 live keynote, whereas Facebook powers-that-be introduced new tools that will give us all a much more open Web. Sounds great to me… but will this make surfing and socializing on the Internet better for some 2% of the population, of which many already feel crippled?
