Start the Week with a Thought and a Smile

Being so busy with our lives, we do not get much time to think about the lives of others not so luck as us in many aspects. That´s what I thought when I saw this video.

Since we do not have this fast food chain, Wimpy,  here -in Lugo, at least- I thought I could include the video in the blog as a way of encouraging you to reflect on how difficult life is for the blind (or visually impaired, to be politically correct). Maybe the initiative is good only from the point of view of publicity, but the smiles of the people are just priceless and contagious, aren´t they?

Wimpy wanted to let visually impaired people know that they offered braille menus in all of their restaurants. To spread the word they prepared braille burgers that blind people could actually read: they took sesame seeds and meticulously placed them on burger buns so that the seeds formed braille.

We take for granted so many things in our everyday lives...

    Hi Rosa!
    I think that it is a good way to get a laugh. I think more use should be this way for all types of things besides food.So they would feel much better in this world that is so difficult for them to communicate with other people who don't suffer the same disability.

    It's true that smiles are very contagious because I have just seen the video and I was smiling seeing the feelings and smiles of this people! Morover, I've always thought that we never stop to get "on the skin" of others, and see what others feel or what are their problems. So I think that, for example, a visit to the third world or to places where people lives a harder life than ours, is something everyone should do (and that I have in my future plans) because I think it's the only way to really appreciate everything you have and your luck in life.

  3. Lucía, congrats on your plans for the future! If everybody shared your plans and fulfilled them, the world would be a much better place.

  4. I think this video is very interesting. I also think within us makes us a little happier. If we think about blind people, at least for me, I feel unhappy, because it´s very difficult for a person sees all black all the time, without enjoying our wonderful world. So the idea of this video is great, and moreover, I think that the boss or the creator of this is very happy too, I´m sure.

  5. Iago, why exactly do you find the video interesting?
