The senses we have are the most powerful tools that we use every single day. Our sense of sight is the one sense that I find most interesting. The eyes are an amazing part of the body, the way we see light and read words, and the way our brain sends signals to our eyes to make out what we are seeing. Some people can see absolutkey perfect while others need glasses. We can use this sense without using any of the others, and if someone doesn't have a sense of sight then its very hard for them to enjoy the things in life that most people enjoy. Seeing things is important because it makes life easier and for people who are blind, they go through challenges. They cannot drive, read or even watch TV regularly, most of the people who have lost their sense if sight were born that way. Some even lose it in accidents or because they got glass in their eye. Reading I found that when one sense is lost, the other senses are heightened, so politely I asked a friend who is partly blind if this is true. What she said amazed me, she said that "I can hear sounds clearer and smell things sooner, I might not have the sense if sight but I don't mind." She can read using brail, and uses a walking cane but she says that there is nothing that she cant do. These senses were given to us to make life easier and make living as a human what is suppose to be. but when one of them is taken away our other senses have to work a little harder.
