We’re a group that has a vision
With pride and dignity
Looking toward a brighter future
Where there’s true equality.
Optimistic and determined to direct our destiny
Come and join us, change the world with ACB.
We come in different packages and personalities
With many skills and talents but few opportunities.
Just take an honest look at jobs that blind folks really do,
Teachers, lawyers, writers, business owners, just to name a few.
We believe that there is more to life than working nine to five.
You’ve got to laugh and have some fun to really feel alive.
And when it comes to love and friendship we can give so very much
We may be out of sight, but we’re by no means out of touch. Hey!
You’ve got to open up a box to be sure of what’s inside
So don’t label us as helpless before giving us a try.
We’re not asking for a handout, we don’t want your sympathy
All we want is just a chance to prove our capabilities
