“Be happy with what you have while working for what you want.”- Helen Keller

When I woke up this morning I learned that Helen Keller was born on this day back in 1880. Through her tough childhood starting at the age of two with scarlet fever rendering her blind, deaf, and mute she had to over come more than many others had to. Severely, misunderstood for her inability to communicate with her family and friends her parents called in Anne Sullivan who taught Helen reading, writing, and how to communicate using braille. Since her childhood, Helen proved to be smarter than she looked. She was able to go to college and get an education. Helen Keller became an activist and remained active in causes for Women’s Rights and other political activities. This bright woman is remembered for showing the world to not dwell on your shortcomings, but to appreciate what is around you.
