Hellen keller - What we can learn from her autobiography

Helen Keller’s ‘The story of my life’,  is one of the best autobiographies to acknowledge that your dream can only be reached if you are willing to climb the hill of difficulty.

Being hearing and visually impaired may have challenged her but it didn’t stop her from being inspired and in turn, inspiring others.

She may not have enjoyed the beauty of colors, but her joy was unlimited. She felt the cool bouncy earth under her feet. Splatters of raindrops weren’t heard by her but she heard the silence of its tingle.

She may not have been able to enjoy watching the fireflies or the natural wonders of the earth but she chose to empower herself with the abilities she had and prove that nothing mattered except a steely determination and a positive attitude towards life.

Isn’t it interesting that the differently abled like Homer, Helen and Louis Braille were the ones who truly could illuminate the light in other’s eyes?

As Helen has written, “To know the thoughts and deeds that have marked man’s progress is to feel the great heart throbs of humanity through centuries, and if one doesn’t feel in these pulsations a heavenward striving, one must indeed be deaf to the harmonies of life.”

 

People like Helen Keller help us understand our purpose in life for the society.

 

They teach us that the doors of dreams are always open and it only depends on how you find the key.
