Hope 2016 was good for you. I wanted to share some highlights of this year.
I came across a comic by Liam F Walsh published in New Yorker showing people acting as blind by using mobile devices and white canes to navigate around. The artist could also have added earbuds as they make people deaf by listening to their portable devices and being oblivious to the world around them.
When looking at people using hearing devices (hearing aids and cochlear implants), don’t assume that they can hear and understand everything. It’s not like wearing eyeglasses that gives you 20/20 vision – even eyeglasses are not beneficial to people who are blind or have some severe eye sight problems.
