Dear Parents,

The subject of this email stems from something that happened to 
me a few Summers ago.  My grandmother from Canada was vsisting us 
for a few weeks.  One day when I went to heat my lunch up, she 
called my older sister into the kitchen to heat my food up for 
me.  After that she explained that she had forgotten that I could 
heat up my food in the microwave.  My sighted family members do 
not treat me like I am two years old.  Most of them have no 
problem letting me do things on my own.  I find that many sighted 
people want to learn about how blind individuals accomplish 
certain things.  I'd love to hear your thoughts on this topic.
