Fact of the Day: Mr. Braille

As a small child, Louis Braille lost his sight due to an accident. Regardless of this, he overcame his disability and mastered using his other senses and abilities. He created the reading and writing system called braille, which has become an invaluable learning and communication tool for the blind and visually impaired.

  12. To teach others about new thing effectively, you've got to have experienced it yourself. Didn't know tho that Braille was blind.
