Blind Love: A Short Film
Testing the Strength of Love
Young love is so romantic and it seems as if everything will go smoothly for the rest of a couple’s life. But then the times of challenge come along and test what strength that love has been built on.
I first saw this video floating around my support group.
I watched it a few times and the more times I watched it, the more I could relate to the emotions –the big near miss near the beginning of the clip. The sudden realization that my life was changing forever.
Pushing people away who loved me and wanted me to know that love wasn’t dependent on anything I did or had.
I could intensely relate to the anger and the struggle for independence and self-reliance.
The awkward transition to a cane.
The self-imposed loneliness.
I’m glad this video shows what it’s like losing vision and not having lost vision. I want you to witness the struggle. Rather, catch a glimpse of it.
I love the message this story brings and I think you will, too!
