A blind man in Florida has seen the world in his own, first-person perspective and now he has opened up the world to others.
The experience has taught him so much about himself, but now, with a little help from a community of blind people, he hopes to help others see more clearly.
The man, who goes by the name of Barronett, says he’s never been able to see a person’s face.
He was born blind and lives with his wife and two young children.
But in 2017, Barronett was able to meet his future wife, Grace, through a Facebook group for blind people.
The two met through the blind community and the two became friends.
When Barronett started getting messages on Facebook from people who wanted to meet him, he decided to meet up with them, too.
“I just said, ‘I’m going to see if I can get you to meet me,'” Barronett said.
He found that some people were reluctant to meet with him.
He explained that he has a vision impairment and could never see a human face.
So he thought it might be more comfortable for him to just sit and talk to people.
But after some time, some people became uncomfortable, and Barronett decided to move on.
“They were kind of scared of me,” Barronett explained.
“I felt really embarrassed about that.”
The man says he met Grace, who is blind, through the group.
He says the couple began dating, but he eventually broke up with her because of their blindness.
He’s now on his own and is now living in Florida, where he has two sons.
When Barronett first met Grace and her husband, he was hesitant to meet them because of his vision impairment.
But after hearing their stories, Barronets openness to meeting people, and her encouragement, he realized that he had to do it.
“That’s when I started to see that there was an opportunity to be more than a normal human being,” Barronetts said.
He believes the experience has changed his life.
“It really opened up a world for me that I never thought I could be in a wheelchair accessible,” Barronette said.
“It opened up my mind to how much of the world is accessible.”
The couple has traveled the world and is currently in London.
They say that they love the opportunity to meet other blind people and their stories.
“The world is a place where there’s a lot of diversity and a lot more people out there that are able to do things in their life that they may not be able to in their everyday lives,” Barronets wife Grace said.
