Toddler and Her White Cane

I came across this video a few weeks after my diagnosis. I think this video of a toddler learning to use her white cane to navigate her surroundings is awesome. If she can do it then why wouldn't I when the time comes. Most of the comments on the video are for the most part positive but a few were filled with pity. The video shouldn't provoke feelings of pity, this little girl is being given independence. It would be pitiful if the video played only to the fact she couldn't see, but it doesn't. Just because someone is impaired in one area in their life doesn't mean they aren't capable in others.
