Summer of 2011 – I was in India, and found an opportunity to volunteer at the school, and serve the visually impaired.
I was warmly embraced by Sister Margaret, and was assigned to help teach music to these children. Jessie madam was the music teacher in charge, and was extremely supportive of me.
I started to teach flute, harmonica (mouth organ), and keyboard.
I soon realized that the children had tremendous potential and were extremely fast learners; we were breezing through lessons, song after song.
The sky was the limit for these “Children of God,” as my mom called them. They had a “Sixth Sense,” if you will, which made up for their impairment.
