Do you know her story? Helen Keller (June 27, 1880 - June 1,1968)
Have you ever seen the movie,The Miracle Worker? It's one of my childhood favorites,and is still a favorite.
Did you know that June 27th is commemorated as ( Helen Keller Day) in the state of Pennsylvania?
When Helen was young she was introduced to Christianity by a gentlemen , Mr. Phillips Brooks. Helen famous words......
"I always knew he was there,but I didn't know his name"
She had an amazing teacher,
Anne Sullivan, she had to have been a God Sent!
This picture of Helen with one of her many dolls was only discovered a few years ago,and
is said to be the earliest image of her teacher, Miss Sullivan.
She had a dog, like my Duke,only his name was Phiz! :)
What an inspiration ,and very powerful story of overcoming a major disability .......amazing.
