Mary Hiland

Telling Our Stories contributor Mary Hiland

Mary Hiland, 75, of Columbus, Ohio, is totally blind and lives alone with her Seeing Eye Dog, Dora (pictured in the photo with her). Mary is the mother of two and a grandmother of five. She writes a blog called Seeing It My Way. Mary says that writing this story made her realize why “social distancing and sheltering in place has not necessarily been a hardship” for her. “I hope it helps those who are experiencing sadness or depression because of having to shelter in place," she adds.
