In this precious video, Gavin walks down from the sidewalk curb to the street for the first time with a white cane. As he slowed inchs to the very edge of the curb, he asks his mom, “I can do it?” to which she enthusiastically replies, “You can do it baby, go ahead.”
The web’s favorite blind vlogger, Tommy Edison, returns to talk about his fears as a blind person. Naturally, he isn’t afraid of ghosts or ‘the dark.’ Instead, he is afraid of things most of us have no problem staying away from, like fire or even bird poop.
Of all his fears, snow is a very interesting one. After much time, he no doubt has memorized his neighborhood. But once a few inches of snow covers all the familiar curbs, steps, and bumps, his entire internal map is basically temporarily erased.
It has been a while, but the Internet‘s favorite blind guy, Tommy Edison, has finally returned to the web to talk more about life being blind. One of the oldest cliche conversations sighted people have with the blind is discussing color, or the lack thereof.
Blind people are often pitied in American society, even though they can’t see everyone staring at them. But it’s not all bad. For the seeing impaired born that way, they never knew any other existent. Not only that, but there’s even a plus side to being blind.
But the best part of being blind is that there is no race, no skin color, no prejudice, and not even physical beauty. Every way you judge a person is based on what they say and their actions, not how they were born.
