Finding true friendship is one of the many ways to feel close to God. True friends will always be supportive and loving, regardless of our situation. Just like God, true friends will always keep an eye out for us and protect our backs. Friendship is true only when we trust others and rely on God.
Autumn Michaels and Rachael Steffens are not just any ordinary pair of high school band members. Their relationship is much deeper because Autumn is blind.
When Autumn was seven months old, she had a brain tumor near her optic nerves. As the tumor was inoperable, the only option her parents had was to remove it along with the optic nerves.
Jason Michaels told his daughter, “Autumn, I’m sorry we have to do this,” Jason remembers telling his little girl. “You won’t be able to see.”
To which Autumn said, “It’s OK Daddy. God will see for me.”
As Autumn was keen on joining the high school band, she had to learn the halftime choreography, routines and perform while holding the clarinet. All these activities proved challenging because of her condition.
Autumn met Rachel Steffens in the summer band camp where the two became close friends. Soon, Rachel chose to become Autumn’s eyes, rather than to play for the high school band in her last year. When the high school band steps on the field, Rachel guides and sync’s Autumn’s movement with the group.
It’s incredible to see the true friendship between Autumn Michaels and Rachael Steffens in action!
