On Being Disabled

Today, at shul, we had a visitor praying with us who was blind. She was making use of a remarkable mechanical device that appeared to be generated one line of braille for her to read at a time.

As she zipped along, I just had to think: here's a woman who can read using just her finger tips - now, which of us exactly is the less able one here?

    Seriously, have you ever tried to run your fingers over Braille writing? I don't know HOW people can learn to differentiate those little dots in any meaningful way. It amazes me that there are people who read Braille faster than most of us read text.
