Eyes On This: I SEE YOU

Our friend and former colleague, photographer Phyllis B. Dooney, produced this beautiful and inspiring short film published on the Huffington Post this past week.  This piece tells the story of "Harmonica" Jimmy Palmaro, a blind teacher in Brooklyn who teaches neighborhood kids in local after-school programs.

"I tell my students 'Don't let your limitations define you. Don't be shortsighted," Palermo says while laughing at his own pun.  "I've gained things through my blindness that are not limitations."
