Nobody on the train would give a seat to this almost blind man with a guide dog and he was forced to sit on the ground

By Alison Forde

A life without sight is a rather limited life: the person who is blind or partially sighted is usually a vulnerable individual, alone, and possibly marginalized by the society in which he lives. When these elements are combined with an advanced age, they risk becoming strong limitations. Obviously there are also those who have the strength to react and improve their lives thanks to various strategies.

The passengers ignored me instead," said the disheartened man, also adding that he avoided getting angry since he has already suffered two heart attacks, a cardiovascular accident and uses a pacemaker.
