Anti #HowEyeSeeIt campaign

This is my contribution to the Foundation Fighting Blindness #HowEyeSeeIt campaign. I do not support this campaign. As a blind mom, parent to one-sided child, one blind child, this campaign is pretty much saying that blindness is something to fear. At the National Federation of the Blind 2016 National Convention, President Mark A. Riccobono addressed the misconceptions of fear and blindness and his banquet speech. You can read his blog about it at this link. https://nfb.org/blog/vonb-blog/challenging-fear-blindness. My husband, Aaron Rupp, also recently had an article published in, “Future Reflections, this is a publication put out by the national organization of parents of blind children and American action fund for parents and educators of blind children. His article also talks about fear. https://nfb.org/images/nfb/publications/fr/fr35/3/fr350315.htm ​
