for many of us, the number 6 is just a number. it can represent the month of June, it's the atomic number for the element carbon and it's the number of strings on a standard guitar.

but for the blind, the number 6 has allowed them to see the world. the basic Braille cell is made up of 6 dots and the combination of raised dots has made it possible for the blind to touch what they cannot see. Braille is the base camp for the blind.

what does the number 6 mean for you?

“And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.” - Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince
