Armando Vias Connections Monthly Newsletter For September And October 2023


First Publication Date For This Month’s Newsletter




Armando’s Corner

Greetings to all of you!

It has been almost two months since I first published The Armando Vias Connections Monthly Newsletter to this website. These past two months has been eventful and exciting.

From meeting the Mayor at my church on August 13, 2023, to celebrating my birthday, and presenting at the Centerville, Georgia Lions Club, you will find the latest that has happened in August and September.

October is Blind Equality Achievement Month. While I do not know what my plans are for this month as far as events related to Blind Equality Achievement Month, I can tell you that I will be out in the community educating the public. Whether it is an Uber or a Lyft driver, or just someone that I meet online, education is very important for me to get people to understand about what I am going through as a blind individual.

Lately, I have been working on a long article about the benefits of car rides. I understand that every blind person may have their own coping strategies regarding dealing with stressful situations. For me, I enjoy going on car rides. That way, I can vent to someone, when I feel comfortable, such as a friend or a future partner to get stuff off of my chest.

I also wrote a letter, as promised to the City of Warner Robins, requesting Accessible Pedestrian Signals. Fast forward when I was at the Hilton Garden Inn Hotel in September, someone told me that there was some talking signals. However, I haven’t confirmed that. I have to hear it to believe it.

Also, in September, after visiting the Hilton Garden Inn, I celebrated my birthday, where we went to Augusta. I then heard their crosswalks. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to capture a recording of their crosswalks.

At the end of this month, I’m looking forward to a huge event. You’ll have to find out though.

I hope that you have a wonderful October!

This is the new logo for the website. It is posted on my Facebook Page, and other platforms.

Armando, a young man in the picture, is holding a cane in his right hand, which is partially visible in the foreground. He has a broad smile, short dark hair, and is wearing a lime green t-shirt with a logo on the left side that reads "Disability Connections" with a tagline "The Resource for People with Disabilities" and a graphic of four interlocking squares. In the background, there is a curtain with a floral pattern and a glimpse of a room with a couch. The atmosphere of the picture is warm and cozy, and the man appears to be in a good mood.
