See More Clearly

Can you imagine walking the streets alone at 15, 16 or 17? Can you imagine yourself on a dark, damp night with nowhere to go, nowhere to run? You don't know who your father is or where you come from. Can you imagine sticking out like a sore thumb? You're big and bulky on the outside, towering over everyone you meet, but on the inside you're just a teddy bear longing for some love and attention. Can you imagine the life of Michael Oher? You don't have to imagine anymore. Go behind the scenes with Michael and the Tuohy family as they invite you to share in the story of their lives and what it means to not only believe in the impact of people but in the existence of miracles as well. Inspiring people across the nation, their story has captured readers and moviegoers alike. The Blind Side Live is sponsored by Museum Tower and will be moderated by 60 Minutes anchor Leslie Stahl. The special event takes place at 8 p.m. Wednesday at the AT&T Performing Arts Center's Winspear Opera House, 2403 Flora St. Tickets are $20 to $150. For more information, call 214-880-0202 or visit
