You may wonder how and if you should help the blind. Blind people are like any other people - sometimes they like help and sometimes they like to do it themselves. The best thing is to calmly and politely ask a blind person if they would like help. It is important to listen as, for example, they tell you how to help them cross the road. There are certain ways of doing things that make it easier for a person who is blind which usually a blind person will tell you.
