Congratulations to Jane Shober for her work to increase awareness of loss of sight. “Dining in the Dark” brought hundreds together, both to share and to experience how blindness feels, an experience all the more poignant when a young person and her classmates acknowledge the terrible truth and resolve to take action.

Larger responses grow out of local personal witnessing to life’s dark valleys. We think of other examples such as cups of tea, quilts, yellow ribbons and food for hungry animals. “Dining in the Dark” was a gallant effort in a less than gallant time in our world.
