This week, hosts Pete and Nancy introduce us to a blind, active duty police officer in Trinidad.

Marlon Parieaho was working as a policeman when he lost his vision.  Hosts Nancy and Peter Torpey talk with him about how he successfully navigated the transition, learned to accommodate to his new situation, and how it impacted his relationship with his colleagues.  Next week we’ll hear his thoughts about blindness and what being blind means to him.
