Hi All,

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!
