My name is Walter Waranka and I am the current president of the American council
of the Blind of Minnesota and am also the current co-chair of the Saint Paul
Mayors Advisory Committee for people with disabilities.
I am writing to you in support of the Prozac and what it can do for Blind and
disabled persons living in United States.
I have been doing a great deal of work with many organizations and individuals
here in Minnesota to get accessible singles to be put in the twin cities metro
and have had a great deal of involvement in setting up the standards for what
and how we are to go about the whole process and would like to see the Prozac
come to be to help along in this quest to provide safe and available travel for
all who need and choose to use it.
I hope this makes some sense.
I live in down town Saint Paul at [ ... ] and there are times that there is not
enough traffic for me to figure out when to cross or even the cars are getting
so quiet that I don't even here them coming.
It frustrates me to have friends come back from Europe and tell me how much more
advance they are in providing a safe environment for disabled person to navigate
Is it not time we catch up with them or go passed them?
Thanks for your time and efforts.
