Milena and I got home awhile ago.  I really appreciate the warm wishes you sent us.  I think we had some pretty good meetings.  Everyone we met with seemed receptive to our concerns.  As a first time team leader I hope that I performed in the best traditions of people like Barbara.

Again  Thank you all so much for your support.

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.

>> Greetings Federation family, I hope this note finds each of you doing well. There are a great many of us doing works every day that improve the lives of the blind of Ohio. I’m excited to be part of this movement and wanted to send a special shout out to those individuals currently in Columbus attending house and senate appointments bringing attention to the legislative issues that are most valuable to us as blind citizens.
