Of course, this book is not really about being blind; it’s about looking past appearance to see the person underneath, it’s about recognizing that personal qualities are more important than physical attributes, it’s about treating people with respect. ~Karen Gedig Burnett

Why do we treat people in various ways? Why do others treat us with respect or disrespect? In “If the World Were Blind,” Karen Gedig Burnett addresses the issues of how we judge people based on their skin color, nationality, clothes, body shape and looks.
