National Federation of the Blind celebrates White Cane Awareness Day
Blind and visually impaired individuals are celebrating National White Cane Awareness Day, a time of national observance appreciating their achievements.
A white cane is a symbol representing the independence of blind and visually impaired people.
Elizabeth Greenwood of Norwalk, who is blind, believes it is important to build awareness and promote safety.
“That's what's so important to me on this national day of appreciation. There are a lot of individuals out there who are disabled, and this is how we survive and get through our daily life using our crutch, which is a white cane,” she said.
