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

Hi Richard,
You say on the form that people can call you with questions, but your phone
number is not here.  
I am not asking for myself -- I have your phone number. 
I am pointing it out, so you can add it for those who do not have it.
Best,
Deborah
