Happy Holidays!


Season's Greetings, Federation family, 


I hope this finds you and yours happy and healthy as we move through the
holiday season. I wish for you, your friends and  family, that this time of
year create happy memories that will last a lifetime regardless of what
holiday you choose, or not, to celebrate. Thank you for living the lives
that you want and, by doing, so demonstrating that blindness does not hold
you back. The work that we do together and the lives that we individually
lead are and will continue making a difference in the lives of blind people
across the state of Oklahoma. Our work will continue in forward momentum
with growth in new chapters, strength in existing chapters and  in raising
expectations of ourselves, each other and those that we meet along the way.

the Federation has done and continues to do in my life. Here's hoping that
each of you have lots of time with family and friends during this special
time of year and that all who are traveling encounter no problems.

The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the
characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day, we raise
expectations of the blind because low expectations create obstacles between
blind people and our dreams. Blindness is not what holds you back. You can
live the life youw ant.!.
