Saturday, October 15th was White Cane Day. This is a day about the celebrating of white canes which are a symbol of people who are blind. We also learned facts about white canes and why they are important. They help people travel independently and keep them safe. In 1964, President Lyndon Johnson signed White Cane Day into law. At my school, Effingham Junior High, Mrs. Adams the librarian, put Braille and books about blind people into a display in the library. I also created posters and put them up around my school. I think White Cane Day is very interesting and important.
