Paul Pepper: Gary Wunder, National Federation of the Blind, "The Cane Drivers"

It's a group called 'The Cane Drivers', and GARY WUNDER tells us about a recent experience they had here in Columbia: "one of the kids said, 'this is the first time I've ever been around blind people who actually ran things, and this tells me that I can run things.'"
