If These Walls Could Talk

The United States Capitol building

The White HouseAs this issue goes in the mail, many of us are returning from the Washington Seminar. At this time of the year we not only talk with Congress about matters of concern to the blind but reflect on the good fortune we have to live in this country, to participate in its representative democracy, and to visit the buildings where the business of the people is conducted. Visiting the Capitol is an annual event, visits to the White House happen with less regularity, and arguments before the Supreme Court happen with even less frequency, but all branches of government know that the National Federation of the Blind is the foremost authority on blindness and, unlike the hundreds of agencies for the blind, we are the blind, speaking for ourselves.
