> International Women’s History Month
> An Interview with Stephanae McCoy
> Contributed by the American Printing House
> In honor of Women’s History Month, we’re learning about women making a
> difference who also have a visual impairment. We interviewed Stephanae
> McCoy about how losing her sight led to her founding her own business, Bold
> Blind Beauty.
> Meet Stephanae
> Stephanae’s sight loss journey spanned over four years. It began with the
> development of a macular hole, which led to further complications and
> eventually a glaucoma diagnosis. After many pokes, prods, and laser
> surgeries, Stephanae’s sight deteriorated, and she was declared legally
> Founding Bold Blind Beauty
> Stephanae decided to create Bold Blind Beauty when she was asked to give a
> presentation on makeup for a group of women who were blind and had low
> vision. Unable to find information about the topic online, Stephanae
> created the presentation based on her own process of applying makeup.
> “There was such a great discussion afterward I knew I had to do something
> to address the void in this area,” said Stephanae. “Bold Blind Beauty began
> as a blog to empower women on the blindness spectrum. It has since evolved
> into an advocacy platform that demystifies blindness through storytelling
> and the celebration of our diverse and inclusive community through
> empowerment, connection, and barrier-breaking.”
> Today, Bold Blind Beauty offers several services. One of these services,
> The Beyond Sight Magazine, aims to highlight members of the blindness
> community through storytelling. Other services offered are the Virtual Work
> Experience Program for high school/college students with disabilities,
> InSIGHT Through Inclusion Speaker Series, Ambassador Program, and the Bold
> Blind Beauty On A.I.R. Podcast.
> The Impact of Bold Blind Beauty: Q&A with Stephanae
> Q: The mission of Bold Blind Beauty is to “improve humanity by changing
> the way we perceive one another.” Why is this mission important to you?
> A: The mission is so important to me because people are important. From
> the time I was very young, I recognized I was different simply because of
> the color of my skin. Today, as a woman over 60 with an acquired
> disability, I am intimately aware of what discrimination feels like.
> Because of my lived experience, I firmly believe that no one wants, or
> deserves, to be reduced.
> People who are perceived as different have to justify their existence
> because other people and systems refuse to accept them as they are.
> Everyone has biases, and it’s up to us…to acknowledge our bigotry and work
> on ourselves. This work isn’t easy, and…we need to leave our assumptions at
> the door so that we can learn to fully embrace people without judgment. The
> work of changing perceptions begins within each of us, and it’s ongoing.
> Q: How does the mission of Bold Blind Beauty benefit the blindness
> A: The mission benefits the blindness community because we believe
> everyone has value. By sharing our stories, we prove to the world that even
> though we are on the blindness spectrum, this doesn’t prevent us from being
> productive members of society. We simply move through the world a little
> differently, and this is our superpower.
> Q: What does beauty look like to you?
> A: Beauty looks like courage to me. Having the courage to be uniquely me
> is beautiful.
> Q: Can you tell us about the acronyms A.I.R. and BLIND? How have these
> acronyms helped change people’s perceptions of blindness?
> A: A.I.R. stands for Access, Inclusion, and Representation. These are the
> main themes on Bold Blind Beauty, which is why we created the podcast Bold
> Blind Beauty On A.I.R. Everyone needs air to survive. People with
> disabilities need A.I.R. to survive and thrive. BLIND = Bold Leaders
> Illuminating New Directions. This acronym was our positive take on the word
> “blind.” Anyone can be a Bold Leader Illuminating New Directions.
> Q: How do you hope Bold Blind Beauty impacts the future history for women
> who are blind?
> A: It’s my hope that women who are on the blindness spectrum and are
> making huge moves will become more largely recognized.
> Q: What do you hope people will take away or learn from visiting your
> A: I hope that people will take away the idea that appreciating
> differences and accepting people where they are is at the heart of
> humanity. When we take the time to stop, listen, and learn from others’
> lived experiences, the tapestry of life becomes more enriched. Many of us
> look at adventurers and risk-takers as bold people. However, depending on
> where we are in our stories, being bold can be something as simple as
> getting out of bed. For onlookers, it takes a bold person to open their
> hearts and minds to understand that differences are beautiful.

> National Memorial Day
> Contributed by Rachel Levitt
> On Monday, May 29th, 2023, we will remember the brave men and women who
> made the ultimate sacrifice while serving our country. Presidents,
> politicians, public figures and foreign dignitaries will lay wreaths on
> thousands of tombs of the Unknown soldiers in Arlington National Cemetery.
> As we remember and honor our heroes, we want to count our blessings and
> stand proud of our service members.
> This Memorial Day, we invite you to take a moment of silence *at 3:00*PM
> EST as we remember those who courageously gave their lives.
> We also want to provide a few additional ideas on how you, your friends,
> neighbors, and family, can all honor this upcoming Memorial Day:
> 1. Take a Walk Through Your Local Veterans Cemetery
> Most states have national veterans’ cemeteries where you can pay a visit
> and honor the fallen. Many cemeteries might have adjusted hours or be only
> open to family members, but this varies across the country.
> 2. Brush Up on Your Memorial Day Knowledge
> Many people easily confuse Memorial Day with Veterans Day or other
> military holidays. You can refresh your memory on the difference between
> these holidays in five minutes or less.
> 3. Participate in a Memorial Day Walk or Running Race
> There are many annual Memorial Day weekend running races – virtual or
> in-person – and you can participate in one of these races in your local
> community as a way to honor the fallen. From 5Ks to half marathons, there
> are plenty of options available through run-hosting organizations across
> the country – all it takes to find them is a quick internet search!
> 4. Learn About Gold Star Families
> The designation “Gold Star Family” is reserved for families of military
> members who have died in the line of duty. This title is meant to honor the
> service member’s ultimate sacrifice while acknowledging their family’s
> loss, grief and continued healing. Spend a few moments this weekend
> learning about Gold Star Families in honor of Memorial Day.
> 5. Investigate Your Family’s Military History
> When is the last time you asked family members about their connection to
> the U.S. military? Their answers might surprise you! Spend a few moments
> this weekend talking to relatives about family members that have served in
> the military.
> 6. Watch the National Memorial Day Parade
> While this annual tradition will be closed in-person to the public, it
> will be filmed and aired on television for families all across the nation
> to enjoy on major broadcast networks, including ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox.
> Check your TV listings to find the airtime of the program near you.
> 7. Virtually Visit a War Memorial in D.C.
> In 2019, the USO headed out throughout the capital region and captured
> 360-degree videos of several D.C.-area war memorials, including the World
> War II Memorial and the Vietnam Memorial.
> 8. Try a CrossFit Hero Workout from the Comfort of your Home
> Often referred to as a WOD (Workout of the Day) in the CrossFit community,
> these Hero WODs are designed to commemorate a fallen war hero and can be a
> healthy way to remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our
> One of the popular hero workouts to tackle on Memorial Day weekend is the
> “Murph,” named in honor of Medal of Honor recipient Lt. Michael Murphy, who
> died in the line of duty in 2005 alongside two fellow Navy SEALs. To
> complete the workout, participants must run 1 mile; do 100 pull ups, 200
> pushups and 300 squats; and run another mile – all while wearing a weighted
> vest or body armor.
> 9. Learn about the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier
> Arguably Arlington National Cemetery’s most iconic memorial, the white
> stone sarcophagus is guarded 365 days a year, 24 hours a day and honors the
> unidentified soldiers who have given the ultimate sacrifice.
> 10. Watch a Movie About the U.S. Military
> There are dozens, if not hundreds, of movies about life in the U.S.
> military. From movies about World War II to memoirs of Vietnam, spend some
> time on Memorial Day weekend watching a film that pays tribute to the
> service men and women who have sacrificed for the nation.
