Blind Hiker Trevor Thomas Defies Misconceptions
Halibutboy Flatfish stashed this in Overcoming Adversity
Just a man and his dog, hiking thousands of miles... but surprise, he's blind!
Sounds like a good guy.
He’s also trying to raise money for Guide Dogs for the Blind, a program he said is near and dear to his heart. “I just want to give back to what’s given me so much,” he said about Tennille.
When people ask him if he would take his sight back if he could, his answer is no. Six years ago, he might have given a different answer. Now, he’s comfortable with who he is. “It’s given me a platform and a cause,” he said. “I really didn’t have any of that before I went blind.”
He got more MEANING in his life, if maybe less happiness (via health).
