> 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?
