Let me start with, my heroes are Mark Twain and Helen Keller. Mark Twain because he believed you should be yourself all of the time. Failing to do so, makes you a hypocrite. Hypocrisy may be the worst human failing. Hypocrites go out of their way to deceive you because they are weak and fearful of others. For me, like Mark Twain, humor is the antidote to frustration and hypocrisy.
Helen Keller is my hero, not just because I am blind, because she set the tone for treating all people with dignity At a time when people with disabilities were literally locked away in the attic, whispered about and pitied ( mainly out of fear), Helen stood up and became a beacon that set truth to the lie.
Because of Helen Keller I can host this blog. Because of Mark Twain, I have something to say. I look forward to your participation and feedback. I would also like to invite you to follow me on Facebook, YouTube and Twitter. just enter my name, Buffalo Tom Peabody, in any search engine and I am the only result, so far.
I would like to apologize in advance, for any technical glitches that may occur, I use TTS technology for the blind, it is not perfect. None of us are.
