1000 Voices Speak For Compassion, FTSF, Kerry's Causes, Shows and Events, The Redefining Disability Awareness Challenge

Socialize, Strategize, Summer Social #Equality #Disability #FTSF

This photo is a section of people who showed up for an event I put on, in a park, at a handy picnic spot.

The weather that day was perfect. The food was enjoyed by all. Everyone seemed to be having themselves a wonderful time. I hadn’t ever really put on an event like that before. My brother (treasurer) did most of the work, sent out invites and got people to show up. We wouldn’t have had the 31 people attending if it weren’t for the work he did and the time he put in.

Great group of people having some great conversations.

I had meant to include this photo in a post the other day, here on my blog, and then I did what often happens to me. The first photo and the second photo were the same photo, not this photo, and multiple family/readers pointed it out.

Thank you because I can’t see which photo I’m posting.

As summer comes to an end, we from the Ontario chapter of the
Canadian Federation of the Blind
were so pleased our first summer social was so well received.

Of
box forts
and happy summer days we won’t ever forget on this
Finish the Sentence Friday
(photo edition).

In spite of the fact that I am blind, can’t see photos, and neither can most in the photo I’m sharing.

Thing we have to learn in the CFB is what we’re hoping to share with the wider world. We, as the blind must speak up and out, for our rights. Yet, this world of ours (as much as anyone’s) is most of all a sighted one.

Tricky stuff. Sometimes, the blind just wanna have fun.

  1. What a fun gathering and I love the ending of your post! You do a great job of reminding people that blind people experience the world in a different way. Kudos to your brother for helping organize such a great get-together!

  2. Great post, Keri! That must have been so fun gathering for a social. I’m glad that the weather turned out to be perfect after all the planning.

    It was a fun event! Good conversations, great food, and wonderful weather. Also worth mentioning were the well thought out speeches by Kerry, her Brian Brian, and Erik, another gentlemen associated with the Federation for the Blind, Ontario Chapter. Great job on everyone’s part.

    And here i thought I was editing an error out of my post (which I did but still missed one, lol). So ignore that fact that there are now two imperfect posts, lol. But again, it was a lovely day! I certainly learned a lot as a sighted person.
