Thanks for the post!

I was glad to see this young man's reaction to seeing colors for the first time:

Wake up to find out that you are the eyes of the world
The heart has its beaches, its homeland and thoughts of its own
Wake now, discover that you are the song that the morning brings
The heart has its seasons, its evenings and songs of its own

I thought this was really cool .

Very much so, fantastic thing to see.

Okay, no internet flex or self patting on the back here..

My main charity is guide dogs for the blind, however a couple of years ago my wife, myself and a few of our long term friends payed for a friends daughter to have Cochlear implants implanted, worth every penny and would do it again, the change it has made in her life cannot be underestimated.

A great story to help us try to forget the madness of politics.
