White Cane Day

October 15th is international White Cane Safety Day. It's purpose is to celebrate the independence of those with blind and visual impairments. It celebrates the success and achievements of those in the blind and visually impaired community and the tool for their independence- the white cane.
Also called Blind Americans Equality Day, it's a day that I never even knew existed until Liam came along, but that will be celebrated in our house from here on out.
So Happy White Cane Day all!

(Extra fact: The 3rd week in May is national Whit Cane Week, slightly ironic that Liam was born the 4th week of may just missing White Cane Week by three days!)
