Jerry Young has been my friend since we met in 1979 at a Toastmasters meeting. He lost his sight in a car accident in 1964 at age 25. Today he is 75 and has learned much on his journey.

He is eager and willing to share his wisdom!

Jerry and me.

Jerry and me

He and I have traveled together over the years, attended many meetings and conferences and given talks and presented workshops as a team.

He has taught me how to interact with him to assist and not hinder.

It is my privilege to have him as a guest for a second time.

We are discussing a list of so called Blind Beatitudes that he enjoys sharing.

Get ready to learn 17 things he thinks you and I need to know about interacting with blind people.

We begin with him telling how he lost his sight.
