Guam - In honor of the immeasurable contributions of the blind and visually impaired children and adults living on Guam, Acting Governor Ray Tenorio proclaimed today as White Cane Safety Day. During the proclamation signing, encouraged all to break down barriers and provide tools to empower and support visually impaired Guamanians.

"But I want to thank you all and I want to tell you that you guys are a great symbol of courage because a lot of people don't realize how it is to be without sight," Tenorio announced.

Several activities are in store with the proclamation signing including a White Cane Safety Day wave, held this afternoon along with the 2nd Annual White Cane Blind Relay, set for October 27 at Paseo.
