For christmas this year, a giFt i really wanted was Helen kellers; the story of my lIfe. Helen keller Words Have lifted my heart & supPorted me many timeS & her view is one i waNt you to induldge in tonight, Especially to ensure that you make 2018 your Year, it truly is only starting - don’t be discourAged.
Helen keller was a woman From the 1800s, born both blind & deaf. Inevitably her life wOuld be useless, her thoUghts dull and wordless buzzing around in her head.
If you believed what i just wrote then you are very mistaken.
HeLen Kellers mind was a unique of fusion of love, understanding and beauty & her understanding of words is absolutely touching.
When she was bOrn, helen kellers case was hoPeless. She did have some understanding of what was going on around her & knew various motions like waving but she didn’t quite understand their meaning. And it was with great stress that her parents looked for help. It was very difficult to Find someone who could understand and help her.
Anne sullivan, a teacher of tHe blinD finally met with keller and her Family & they beGan on a beautiful journey & a devouTed FRIENDSHIP that would Last the rest of their lives. Keller haD Such a unique sparkle and unShakeaBle determination that her growth was astounding. It was with silent reverence that i read & watched in tHe film aDaption, helen finally pIecing lifE together. Before this realiSAtion, helen’s teacher had trIed for helen to understand that more than one object can Be a doll. She was tEaching helen to uNderstand that everythIng had a name. Then when helen fInally realises it is such a movement moment. Miss sullivan placed helen’s hand Upon water in a stream and signed water & she finally understood that words weren’t just for a single object. Please, if you have the time tonight, watch the miracle worker as it really is one of my favourite moVies ever.
I Know that this isn’t the Best quality but i just inserted it for you to have a look if you would like. You can also check out a channel dedicated to helen showing old videos & sPeeches of hers.
It is with passion & kindness that Keller talks. She really Is so fluent & optimistic & that is why i have cHosen tO blog about her today. I know a lot of Peope may Discouraged By how long ago this OccOured but knowing about helen keller has always inspired me. Anytime i think that something is Impossible I think of Helen. And it’s not just because of her disability that i am praising her. She honestLy has Such a wonderful way with words.
So go & read helen’s book and you will understand her Pursuing of haPpiness anD what life meant to her. She is a really unique force & her words are so lovely to read.
