The Amazing Life of Helen Keller (18 Photos)

 

 

Helen Keller is one of our heroes.  With the help of her loyal teacher, Anne Sullivan, a blind and deaf young girl would blossom and become not just the first blind/deaf person to earn a Bachelors Degree, but also a political leader and activist.  She lived an amazing life of travel and teaching that was imbued with optimism and kindness.  The following photos highlight her beautiful life.
