Braille Day

January 4th Celebrates Braille Day

Today on Days to Remember we celebrate the birthday of Louis Braille on January 4th 1809. Who invented the Braille System for the blind.
Louis Braille was a French educator and inventor of a system of reading and writing for use by the blind or visually impaired. His system remains known worldwide simply as braille.

Blinded in both eyes as a result of an early childhood accident, Braille mastered his disability while still a boy. He excelled in his education and received scholarship to France’s Royal Institute for Blind Youth.

While still a student there, he began developing a system of tactile code that could allow blind people to read and write quickly and efficiently.
Inspired by the military cryptography of Charles Barbier, Braille constructed a new method built specifically for the needs of the blind. He presented his work to his peers for the first time in 1824.

In adulthood, Braille served as a professor at the Institute and enjoyed an avocation as a musician, but he largely spent the remainder of his life refining and extending his system.

It went unused by most educators for many years after his death, but posterity has recognized braille as a revolutionary invention, and it has been adapted for use in languages worldwide.

Sometimes we don’t think about how important our eyes are to us, until we lose it.

Today’s YouTube presentation is about having vision, there’s small commerical at first but, I thought it would good way to celebrate Louis Braille’s birthday was by tapping into your true potential like he did with the Braille system.

Brought to you by user name Just 1 Man, as this New Year unwinds we have to let go of our fears, and retrain our brain to think how vision is part of daily success in all our endeavors.

Be the Vision you’ve always dreamed you could be!
