I started working with the true movement a short time after I met Gary, right away I envision the promise that this Idea offers and its only begun to blossom. I work in ophthalmology and I hear from patients every day of the difficulties that the loss of sight brings, they so often tell me of the little things the things that most people underestimate in a given day. The monumental aspect of the true movement is that this consideration is the most essential. in the years I've known Gary I learned that if he says something is difficult he says it from experience. and he is solely out to make things easier for individuals with all types of disabilities. I work with the true movement because I Also believe in a way to work around these obstacles. Because when we consider each other we can help each other obtain Independence.
