it is not a wish to be blind

Life is so unfair and some people tend not to realiz that some words they say will end up hating other people. Just this previous week, one of the ministers, a female for that matter made the blind complain because of her unthought statements, if I can say so.

"Blind people can't see development". Surely every blind person can feel discriminated and sad about that statement. yet a minister, a public speaker, a role model saying said such words. I heard the sad news from a blind person Mary, a lady I have come to know. She complained of how some one can be speaking of such hateful words. I was so hate and wondered what prompted the minister to say make such a statement. Even if these people don't see they can feel, they are intelligient, clever and have rights.Our friends see in their own special way. I just hope every disabled person can be treated as a normal human being. It is not anyone's wish to be blind and not able to see the world around us..

The senses

Dear Dando,
thank you for your post. That statement is outrageous. What was the context? It would be interesting to see what this is supposed to be an argument for or against.
In friendship,
Andrea
