Woman raising money for students at school for blind

Editor, I am the mom of a child who is a student at the Georgia Academy for the Blind in Macon. This school has been serving the needs of all children in the state of Georgia with visual and multiple disabilities since 1852.

While I fully support one's right to free speech and voting, I am troubled by incompleteness and/or inaccuracies in material discussed.
