October is Meet the Blind Equality Achievement Month. On Oct. 15, noon PT/3 p.m. ET/8 p.m. UK, Purpose Talk Radio host Cindy Freeman will discuss with guests Stacy Fuehrer and Jennifer Wenzel what it means to them to be blind, including how they function and work in a sighted world, what it means to use a guide dog, how a blind person can raise children, and other topics.
