OOPS!  Thanks to Janet Kurz.  I had the wrong dates on the announcement.  Here is a corrected version.
NATURE OF INDEPENDENCE
Independent Travel and the Blind Child
2012 PARENT TEACHER CONFERENCE
April 13 and 14, 2012
Washington State School for the Blind
 

Our independence comes from within. A slave can have keen eyesight, excellent mobility, and superb reading skills—and still be a slave. We are achieving freedom and independence in the only way that really counts—in rising self-respect, growing self-confidence, and the will and the ability to make choices. Above all, independence means choices, and the power to make those choices stick.
