Ken Rodgers: Blindness is just one part of me

Ken Rodgers: Blindness is just one part of me


There was a time when people with disabilities were kept behind closed doors. Being seen living my life to the fullest is important to me.

I became blind 30 years ago, at the time, I did not know what being blind would mean for my life. Now, I’m comfortable in my world. It’s important for others to see me taking public transportation, walking downtown, sitting in a restaurant. That’s how I encourage others, by just being “me”.
