The number listed for the RP study ("Here and There," November 2003) was incorrect. If you are interested in participating in the study, call (617) 573-3602 and ask for the clinical coordinator.
A misunderstanding led us to believe that Ronald Shimovetz was the author of the poem "Accepting Blindness," which appeared in the November 2003 "Braille Forum." The author of the poem is, in fact, unknown. We thank Mr. Shimovetz for sharing the poem with us and with our readers.
"And There Was Light" is available in Braille and on cassette from NLS cooperating libraries. Cassette: RC 46611; Braille: BR 11692 (also in Web Braille).
The American Council of the Blind strives to increase the independence, security, equality of opportunity, and to improve quality of life for all blind and visually impaired people.
