I really, really wanted to know more about the accident, and about this prideful teen, and the relationship between the two friends. The frist several paragraphs are familiar territory--but the girls' story would be compelling! Consider sharing it with us some time.
I think Jan is right. You have a great concept here that could really have an impact.

An angry blind young woman. Especially if told in first person, I think you could write a very powerful and important piece. Think of describing her emotion, adjusting to her new life, her newly heightened senses. Does she blame someone? God? Herself? There is lots of good stuff here to write about.

Go for it.

What you've got here is great, but like the others said, more would make it even better. But I really liked the dialog between the two friends. Good job!

I think the article is great, and makes a great point.
