White Cane Safety Day

Today is White Cane Safety Day.

For your safety, if you see a guy about 6-foot tall, 250 pounds, carrying a white cane, don’t stop suddenly in front of him, for you will surely be knocked down and trampled because he can’t see you. Trust me on this, I have seen it happen too many times.

The individual is a relative, and he sincerely feels bad about knocking you into next Tuesday, but there really is a reason he waves that white cane in his path – he’s legally blind.
