I Still Hear the Bell Ringing

Posted in LCB on September 7, 2009 by Brian

Graduate.  That is what they call those who complete a training program.  I have completed the training program at the Louisiana Center for the Blind.  I don’t consider myself a graduate.  I call myself…whole.  I feel complete as a man again.  The program at LCB is not something to be done, but rather, it is something to experience.  An experience which changes lives.  I cannot convey in words that which I have gained from the faculty and staff in Ruston, Louisiana.   A small town which contains big hearts.

Thanks go to J.D., James, Arlene, Jeff, Marilynn, Jerry, Josh, Bethel, Neita, Angela.

The other students and I have one thing in common.  That provided a bond and friendships that will last a lifetime.  Not being with them everday will be difficult.  I will mss you all.

The training is complete, but the journey will continue.
