When you meet me, be comfortable. It will help both of us if you remember these simple points of courtesy:
In all fifty states, the law requires drivers to yield the right of way when they see a white cane or dog guide. Only the blind may carry white canes. Certified dog guides (in harness) are allowed in all public places including: grocery stores, restaurants and hospitals. You see more blind persons today walking alone, not because there are more of us, but because more of us have learned to make our own way.
