Bird Box Challenge: There’s More to Being Blind Than Just Wearing a Blindfold

The recent popular Netflix movie Bird Box has inspired the Bird Box challenge, which encourages viewers to wonder what it is like to be blind.

When people injure themselves doing ordinary tasks under blindfolds, they may conclude that the activities which have hurt them are dangerous for all blind people. This belief is not true. Real blind people, like the character Malorie, move around safely every day. They cook, clean, raise their children, climb stairs, cross streets, play games and sports, visit friends, and go to work.
