Some people talk about how someone ought to do something about Braille
literacy.  Some people wring their hands and whine about the sorry state of
Braille literacy.  Thankfully, folks like Seedlings, Nick and Terri Wilcox
and the national Federation of the Blind are doing something to improve
literacy for blind children.  Thanks to all who contribute to Seedlings and
who help with Braille Camp and programs like the Bell program.


Warmest Regards,
