Beauty Through the Eyes of the Blind

How would you define beauty if you couldn't see? This powerful video redefines the meaning of beauty with words, senses, experiences, touch and feelings. These individuals, stripped of the ability to see, reshape what it means to be beautiful. Instead of visuals, they perceive beauty as a state of being that cannot be seen but an experience that can be felt.

One individual describes that losing sight was actually a gift: "I don't care what nationality somebody is, I don't care how tall somebody is, I don't care how big I don't care what nationality somebody is, I don't care how tall somebody is, I don't care how big or small they are. A person is beautiful because they are true to themselves." Now that's beautiful!
