Here’s something good. Actually, we’ll call this one downright remarkable. It’s the story of Chris Downey, a successful architect who, at the age of 45, went completely blind.

Chris’ positivity and incredible ability has allowed him to not only continue practicing architecture, but to do it in a way nobody has ever seen before. Watch this clip to hear his story firsthand.
