Setting A Goal

From the NFB FAQ:

Do blind people feel bad about being blind? Do they like to talk about it? 
Most blind people are too busy to think about blindness very much. But being blind is nothing to be ashamed of. Blindness is a perfectly respectable characteristic of a person. Most blind people would be glad to answer any questions you have about blindness, just ask them. When someone first loses sight, then he or she might be unhappy. After receiving special help to learn how to do things as a blind person and having a more positive attitude about being blind, then a person can learn to feel okay about blindness.

Yes, I'll have some of that, please.

Something about that paragraph feels very 60s non-PCish. Did you get that too?
