BLINDNESS and ELVIS
Sadly, there are many blind people in this world but I bet many are Elvis fans and recently Elvisly Yours has been introduced to such fans on different Continents. For some time I have been in correspondence with Paul Graham, a blind fan who lost his sight some years after he became an Elvis fan. He has written a book about his experiences being a blind Elvis fan and how Elvis' music has inspired him so much and kept him going so he has written a book to share his love for Elvis.
As a result of mailing Elvis fan clubs I heard from my friends Susan and Roy in New Zealand who have a friend, Lynette who has been to Graceland several times and she is blind. One wonders how blind people react to a visit to Graceland and I was sent a most moving account written a few years ago by a Lynette and it just has to be read. It is truly inspiring.

We would like to
thank Lynette, Susan and Roy for sharing this truly
remarkable journey to Graceland that is a real inspiration
to us all.
