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.
