The story of Helen Keller is inspiring.
She had lost her sight and hearing due to a childhood illness and for a minute, it must have seemed like all is lost.
In spite of this overwhelming state, she learned to understand and communicate with the world around her as well as acquire excellent education.
Her parents had hired an extraordinary teacher.
Parents, teachers and mentors have a huge responsibility it seems.
Helen Keller became an author and was widely esteemed for her work.
For many she had become a symbol of the triumph of the human spirit over adversity.
Now I think, it is possible to live the dream and overcome adversity through learning.
To give up is easy, but I would be curious to know what I could achieve by not giving up.
So I seek to understand, learn, create and pursue excellence.
Great stories often had humble beginnings.
At the end of the day, all you can control is you. Be kind to yourself.
“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.” Helen Keller
