As I interact with visually challenged students,
I see their sensorial sight diminished,
Yet gifted in spirit.
Spirit is shining bright,
Their approach towards life with
Perseverance, determination and sense of helping one another,
Amidst and beyond challenges,
Creating their own path and identities,
Captured my heart and
Opened my mind’s insight,
Experiencing beautiful moments of Inspiration!
NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR:
I find some kind of happiness and satisfaction in volunteering my little time reading, scribing or helping visually challenged individuals.
