It was a cold winter morning in February of 2015. As dawn began to break, I woke up remembering an unusually vivid dream. The dream, so lifelike, as if I was standing in the dark cave watching.
In the center of the cave was a hole in the ground. And bricks were stacked around it about four feet in height. It appeared to be the opening of an old well.
To the right of the pit, a tall, dark figure stood in the shadows. And to the left stood a brick wall 3 or 4 feet in height. I stood in front of the hole, with eyes gazing at the tall, dark figure in the shadows.
Helen Adams Keller discovered the power of touch as a child, and she demonstrates you can overcome life’s struggles and make a difference in the lives of others.
Helen Keller was born on June 27, 1880, in Tuscumbia, Alabama. She was one of the most remarkable and influential people in American history.
Helen contracted an illness at 19 months old, described by doctors as “acute congestion of the stomach and the brain,” which might have been scarlet fever or meningitis. The illness left Helen both deaf and blind.
She could see and hear before the illness, and after the sickness, and could communicate somewhat with Martha Washington, the six-year-old daughter of the family cook. And by the age of seven, she had more than 60 signs to talk with her family.
