A word about unity:

I have been reflecting on the event in Tucson and thought that I would take 
a moment to share my thoughts.

The strength of the National Federation of the Blind is our ability to come 
together to strive to improve the lives of blind people in America and in 
particular in California.  I want to commend all of the people who work so 
hard in our organization to promote unity.  From time to time, we have 
experienced rhetoric which does nothing but cause discention.  We are at a 
time right now in our affiliate when blind people are coming together in 
monthly chapter meetings, conference calls and annually in convention 
assembled to discuss issues which impede independence and policies which 
sometimes seem anti-productive.  Ensuring that we will commit to a peaceful 
resolution of the issues is the foundation of our purpose for a more perfect 

Thank you for your support and cooperation.  Let us promise that unity will 
always be our rock.

Mary Willows, President
National Federation of the Blind of California
