Milestones

My road in life has been direct.
Was told he was going blind when he was 28 years old.
Had many fears, among them, "How am I going to take care of my kids?" and "Who's going to want to date a blind man?"
Went back to college at age 40; by then, he was completely blind.
Realized he would have to work two or three times as hard as other students in order to get by.
He couldn't write, so he'd tape his lectures, then go home, listen to them again, and transcribe them on his computer.
After graduating, he'd still run into instances where people would assume he couldn't do something.
Became a motivational speaker to promote awareness of his disability; says he wanted to be accepted as a person, not just as a "blind person."
When he heard his first "success story"-a man who'd turned his life around after hearing one of Larry's speeches-he knew he'd found his passion.
