The Country of the Blind

"In the country of the blind the one-eyed man is king."

But what if all of the one-eyed man's friends and family expected him to be blind too?

And what if a man with one eye (or even two good working eyes) grows up with the blind ways of life? What if it would be more comfortable for him to be like everyone else? What if no one believes that he can see? What if they don't even know what sight is? Would the man lead the people? Helping and improving their way of life? Would he become their king?

Or would he, perhaps, just decide to close his eyes?
