OKLAHOMA CITY –Legally blind youth and adults have four opportunities this summer to develop adaptive skills, confidence and more independence at free, week-long training programs offered by the Oklahoma Department of Rehabilitation Services.

Now in its 15th year, DRS’ Adult Blind Living Evaluation training is designed to give hope through education to newly blind individuals.

Some participants come for residential ABLE training because they live in rural areas where transportation for daily training is not feasible.

Memorial Day

We remember the brave who sacrificed all for us this Memorial Day

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
