An Eye on Vision Issues!
Volume 9: Issue 3; Week of September 16 to 22.
I was impressed by the Paralympics, which finished a couple of weeks ago. I listened to an NBC story of a naval officer named Lt. Brad Snyder who lost his vision one year ago to the day as he won a gold medal in the Paralympics Games in swimming. A great inspiration for overcoming his disability. Brad stated that he was determined not to let his vision loss stop him from living a full life. Way to go Brad!
