That was really good.  You told it like it is.

  The School of Piano technology for the Blind in Vancouver, WA has partnered with the Washing State School for the Blind in a speech club. Two club members speak each week and an adult gives a training talk each week. All persons also have an opportunity to run the meeting and participate in extemporaneous speaking topics each week. 

   

  In the last two weeks we have been talking about the need for high expectations for blind people. 

   

  During the training portion of the meeting I gave the attached talk. At the end of the meeting a sighted volunteer expressed personal offence to the presentation and felt that I was an angry blind person. What is your opinion of the talk and viewpoint expressed?
