In his memoir, Present into Past: My Journey through Darkness and Light, Dennis McCormack shares anecdotes and poems that describe his time as a student at the Halifax School for the Blind and his later work at the Atlantic Braille Press and the Canadian National Institute for the Blind-with the hope of helping others find contentment and reach their potential.
By offering essays that illustrate McCormack's own life lessons, he provides a stepping stone for anyone ready to embark on their own journey to discovering happiness. McCormack begins with the story of how he entered the Halifax School for the Blind in September 1953, where, for the next thirteen years, he would study in an environment where teachers and students did not allow anyone to blame failure on their visual difficulties. As he progresses through his compelling life story, including the founding of the Atlantic Braille Press and marrying his soul mate, McCormack provides insight into how faith, love, and determination helped him find his way from the darkest days to the light.
Present into Past: My Journey through Darkness and Light is a poignant memoir sharing the lesson that love is our birthright and that our true destiny is happiness.
