Commentator Stephen Kuusisto recalls the day a man walked into his life to train him to use a guide dog for the blind. Kuusisto was sitting at home, depressed, blind, receiving a government check, with little hope for the future. But learning to work with a guide dog reminded Kuusisto that life could be fulfilling again.
