Was the speech suppose to be attached?  Did I miss something?  Hmmmm

When you send it you might also send th link to the recording on the nfb.org
web site.  The recording is even better to hear than just reading the speech

I also vote for Dr. tenBroek's "The Cross of Blindness", Dr. Jernigan's
"Blindness a Left Handed Dissertation", and Dr. Jernigan's "Blindness Is
Literature Against Us".

Subject: [Nfbc-info] A speech from the past worth reading again

Last weekend, we held a Chemistry Camp for blind high school students. 
During introductions, Bill Gerrey, (one of our oldtimers) told the students 
about an address which he heard being delivered by Dr. tenBroek in 1956 in 
San Francisco.  I have sent the speech in its entirety to the students and I

thought you might like to read it again also.

Bill Gerrey is an Engineer at the Smith Kettewell Eye Institute in San 
Francisco.  Bill attended Chemistry Camp as a mentor.  Bill told the 
students about the NFB and how it changed his life every opportunity he got.

He told them that Kenneth Jernigan changed what the  white cane symbolizes. 
Not a symbol of dependence but that of independence.  I am going to follow 
up with the students and send them all our best speeches.  Tell me your
