“I didn't know that there were other blind people except me and my brothers.”

14-year-old triplets Leo, Nick and Steven Argel have been blind since birth.

Growing up, their single mother had a hard time caring for them, and she rarely allowed them outside their home.

But when they were 10 years old, Ollie Cantos—another blind man in their community—got word of their situation and knocked on their door.

Ollie begins their conversation.
