I recently received the RFB&D "Family News" in the mail. In their
appeal for "a generous gift," they give a few real life
stories. Here's a quote from the story on the front page:
"Then came school. Cooper was aware of the sighted kids, running and
playing and doing their schoolwork independently. He sometimes felt
isolated. But he was always able to keep up--until the third
grade. Cooper tried his hardest to read his books in Braille. But
it was very difficult, and it took him a long time. But the end of
the year, he had to miss a special class field trip because he had
not met his reading requirements."
OY! Stuff like that makes me so aggravated!
