a cartoon strip with 9 frames… Frame 1: (The character resting his arms on the ledge facing you – the reader) Hi! Frame 2: (The character lying on a bed) I sleep and wake up like everyone else…! Frame 3: (The character brushing his teeth) Brush my teeth like everyone does! Frame 4: (The character eating with cutlery while a cup with a hot beverage is to his left) Eat breakfast like all the rest! Frame 5: (The character backing the reader using a cane to navigate) Go to work and back… well, almost like the rest! Frame 6:
(The character facing the reader carrying a dog) I cuddle up pets like others do! Frame 7: (The character backing the reader with his arms up in the air and his right leg about to stomp the ground) Feel happy… sad… angry… mad… like everyone else! Frame 8: (The character folding his arms and facing the reader) I’m a human being like each one of you, but yeah… I’m blind! Frame 9: (The character resting his arms on the ledge looking at the reader) Now why should my blindness be a disability for you when it is not for me!
