Blind: (adj) unable to see; sightless
Visiting the Grand Canyon. Bad time to be blind.
A fireworks display. Be prepared to enjoy the bangs. Not a positive if you’re blind.
Running across some race situation, culture or individual where your prejudice is still rubbed a little raw by your ignorance. Blindness can be a plus.
A great teacher once said, “The blind cannot lead the blind or they’ll fall into the ditch.”
But the truth of the matter is, if the blind have already walked the path, then they are better ushers for other blind people than those with sight, trying to explain what lies ahead.
I’ve been blind.
- I’ve been blinded by my bigotry.
- I’ve been blinded by my sense of inadequacy.
- I’ve been blinded by my greed.
- I’ve certainly been blinded by my lust.
My blindness helps me understand my fellow-sightless-brothers and sisters.
Matter of fact, I’m not so sure that you can ever see unless you go through a season of being blind.
Certainly you’ll never appreciate it as much.
