Helen Keller

by Priscilla Herrera

(Houston,Texas U.S.A)

The reason I choose Helen Keller is because she not only being blind but also deaf demonstrated that impaired people can also lead a very good life.

She demonstrated to everyone that being impaired doesn’t make her or anyone else in the same position any different from everyone else. And because she showed her braveness she graduated from college with honors. And I’m pretty sure that after her doing what she did a lot of undocumented persons followed her footsteps and did the same thing and graduated from college and maybe more to become someone important to their families.

I my self am a parent of one deaf child and one hard of hearing child, so me and millions of other people and those who fought for our right to be able to teach our children sign language and help them have some form of communication to also lead successful life.

I completely agree. And I think it is such a blessing that you are sharing sign language with your children. Thank you for sharing! 🙂
