Project Purple, Day 25

1 in 20 people living with Epilepsy are sensitive to flickering lights (photosensitive epilepsy).

Video games, strobe lights, flashing lights on the big movie screen. These things are everywhere and most of us think nothing of them. Enter someone with epilepsy. Fortunately for my family, flashing lights have not been a problem. I will forever be sensitive to the potential hazard, though, and consider the implications of situations when these things are used. Perhaps sensitivity and awareness in our own lives with friends and children is the way to go. Knowledge and sensitivity can serve us well in many areas of life, come to think about it.
