Beyond the Sunset

After listening to friends discuss an unusually vivid sunset over Winona Lake, Indiana in 1936, a blind man named Horace Burr remarked that he had never seen a more beautiful sunset.

There was a pause in the conversation when one of the others in the group addressed Horace: "People are always amazed when you talk about seeing."

"I can see," Horace replied. "I see through other people's eyes, and often I think I see more; I see beyond the sunset." *
