Subject: [NFBK] September All Chapters Meeting


Join us on Monday, September 12 at 7:00 PM, EST for our monthly all chapters
meeting. Our topic will be a reading and discussion of the story titled:
"Beyond The Funny Tree" by Denise Franklin. From our NFB past president Dr.
Mark Maurer, Denise used these words springing from a childhood experience
to symbolize all of the wonder and goodness life might hold if one might
just be allowed to go Beyond the Funny Tree--the funny tree being the limit
beyond which she as a small blind child had been forbidden to venture. A
limit no doubt which was quite appropriate for a six-year-old. For all of
us, going Beyond the Funny Tree--those limits that we ourselves or others
place upon us--is a life-long endeavor. Call it a glorious adventure, a
painful struggle, or more likely a combination of the two, it exists for us
all. Some of the limits we as blind people face are externally imposed, but
some of them we put there ourselves. This means that when your hearts and
minds are changed, so are our own. When we meet people who believe that we
have the capacity to participate fully in all of the goodness life can hold,
we are enabled to respond with belief. Together we strike out on a glorious
adventure and find that life is filled with wonder.
