Mary Ellen, you are so right on! But I remember having those 
feelings about people in the NFB, that I would be bullied, and 
one or two people discouraged me from going to CCB because they 
thought I would be bullied.  I never felt that, though I did find 
myself angry at the way some people treated sighted folks.  
There's no reason to be downright rude when people ask if they 
can help, and I saw that happen several times.  It really 
bothered me to see that.  Because what happens the next time some 
blind person really does need help? We don't all have the same 
skill level in doing things.  I can cook a meal for 15 or 60, but 
doing my monster route scared m" to death.  To say nothing of my 
independent drop! Obviously, everyshing turned out okay, because 
I graduated and am here to tell the tale.  Lol.    Peace,
