You're about to experience what it's like to grow up blind. Please put on your headphones, close your eyes, and focus on what you can hear. 
 
Oh, careful little one. You'll get wet. 
Goodnight stars. Goodnight air. Goodnight noises everywhere. 
Can you feel it? It's a sandcastle. 
One, two, three - Happy birthday to you. 
Come one. Everyone inside. 
Oy. Watch where you're going you blind twat. 
Hey lads, check it out. Oy. What you looking at? 
Darling, you okay in there? What's wrong? 
We can't just send her away. 
It's a special school for blind children. It's for the best. 
Come on everyone. Settle down. That's enough. 
Don't you think that's a bit of an ambitious career choice for someone like you? How about receptionist in a gym. 
Don't let go of her hand. Mud puddle! 
It's just not right. She shouldn't be allowed to run against normal kids. 
Your mum is right. Don't listen to them. 
You do what you want to do, darling. If you want to run, then run. 
Head up, head up. Keep going, keep going. That's good. 
On your marks. Get set... 
Open your eyes. 
Super run from Libby Clegg. New world record! That's how you respond to a challenge! 
Every hour another person in the UK loses their sight, but they don't lose their ambition.
