Today is White Cane Safety Day! It was recently renamed by Obama to be Blind Americans Equality Day, but that sounds much less cool. It also seems a wee bit cheesy to me. With White Cane Safety Day, it's a little mysterious and made me want to look into it more, because i didn't fully understand what it meant. When I found out what it meant, I thought it was awesome BECAUSE it didn't just spell out the holiday for you, and it didn't overtly call a group of people out. Blind Americans Equality Day just seems too obvious. Honestly, I wish they kept it at the original. Oh, well. Take today to be aware and possibly even research blindness. There are actually quite a few interesting facts out there.
Thanks for reading!
