A key to success is caring for others and engaging in life.

St. Louis (PRWEB) July 17, 2014

Blind since birth, author Homer Page’s new book “It’s My World Too: Accepting Challenges, Embracing Life” is a testament to not letting circumstances become limitations.

This personal memoir shares Page’s path to a meaningful personal and professional life, while shedding light on what it’s like growing up in mainstream America with a disability.

Rather than make excuses for himself, Page was determined to not let blindness hold him back. He earned his doctorate from the University of Chicago and went on to teach at University of Colorado. He also pursued a career in elective office. A leader in the disability rights movement, Page has lectured on rehabilitation of the blind in Sweden and Poland.

“A key to success is caring for others and engaging in life,” said Page. “Anger, despair and other negative emotions prevent you from being happy.”

Throughout his life, Page has known success and failure, felt hope and heartache and experienced joy and despair. Page hopes to inspire readers with the courage to act and the wisdom to accept what you cannot change.
