> Dear Fellow Federationists and Students:
> Good Day! Oscar J. Montiel, a fellow student and proud Federationist, and I, had a late night idea pop into our heads, collectively, that we are seeking feedback on. Please inform us if this is a totally outlandish idea. (Smiley) Oscar J. Montiel and Naim Muawia Abu-El Hawa jointly present: A long white cane with a button, like the button of an umbrella, that would collapse and expand the long white cane. I understand that telescoping canes break rather easily, while the standard collapsible canes are quite heavy, cumbersome, and to be frank, simply annoying. We would like to produce a light weight, feedback focused, texture sensitive, flexible, and durable long white cane. The button, like that found on an umbrella, is intended to provide convenience and ease of access to the long white cane’s function of collapsibility. Please be sure to get back to Oscar J. Montiel and/or I with ideas and feedback, preferably off list. I may be reached via email, at: nmabuelhawa at gmail.com, or, via phone, at: (202) 848-8932. Oscar J. Montiel may be reached via email, at: oscarjmontiel37 at gmail.com, or, via phone, at: (703) 986-9768. We look forward to feedback, again preferably off list. If there is any Buy In, or, willing investors, also please feel free to reach out, off list, to either Oscar J. Montiel, or, myself, Naim Muawia Abu-El Hawa. Imagine walking all around your college campus, with a light weight cane, that collapses with minimal distractibility, as you walk into your lecture hall. (Smiley) Oscar J. Montiel and I take constructive criticism relatively well; please feel free to be brutally honest, when providing feedback. (Smiley) Thank you all for your support. Many thanks and much respect.
