There was the time a fifth grader thought it would be funny to punch the blind kid and run. So he snuck up on Ben Underwood and hit him in the face. That's when Ben started his clicking thing. "I chased him, clicking until I got to him, then I socked him a good one," says Ben, a skinny 14-year-old.

"He didn't reckon on me going after him. But I can hear walls, parked cars, you name it. I'm a master at this game.

If nothing we do matters, then all that matters is what we do. The smallest act of kindness can be the greatest thing in the world.

Makes me wonder what all the amazing gifts people have are. Like maybe we don't know we have them, because we never had the motivation to discover them. If Ben had never been blind, he probably wouldn't have learnt to use echolocation.
people are pretty amazing.

Omg. That is so touching and amazing. But even thoguh he can't see many wonderfull things, his hearing is more in tune so he probably hears a lot more then an average person does. Definately reminds me of Daredevil to.
