    I have no idea when this video is from, or if it's posted on this board already.

    But this kid is simply amazing. He lost his eyes at two, but still manages to maneuver around better
    than most people who can see, just by using something called echo recognition. Really terrific story.

    Kudos to his mom. She created an environment in which he could figure out ways to compensate. She should be really proud of what she did for him. It proves that you can be victimized, but that doesn't necessarily mean you have to be a victim. Great story!

    Didn't read the link, but I think the kid was on some TV news magazine a while back. If it's the same kid, yes, it's amazing.
