defense courses for our blind employees. In fact, I believe that self
defense courses should be provided for all of those employees who travel
back and forth to work. We are living in a rapidly changing world where
unfortunately, violence seems to be becoming the norm of the day and a world
where we are being constantly called upon to protect our physical well
This is not going to change and as a matter of fact it is only going to
become more of an acute and vital need. In the case of the blind person,
this need would be doubly important and I do not think that I would need to
draw the picture any more clearly. Companies and corporations could score
some important social awareness points by thinking about this. At the best
of times, it is very difficult for a blind traveler; having to deal with
busy streets, crowded buses and subways, and cluttered sidewalks. All of
this leads to the need for a blind traveler or commuter to be able to
protect themselves physically.
Is it time then for employers to start thinking of finding ways to institute
some sort of self defense course/courses for their blind employees? This
can certainly help others as well.
