It was a simple thought: "More than at any other time, when I hold a beloved book in my hand my limitations fall from me, my spirit is free." Coming from nearly anyone else, this quotation might not be so extraordinaire, but this came from Helen Keller who truly was. By the time she was nineteen months old she was fully deaf and blind. Despite this, she devoted her life to learning, educating, writing, and reaching others. Her love of reading was known and inspiring but she wanted learning from every sense. She became an eloquent speaker, a prolific writer, heard people in her own way through feeling their lips as they spoke. She used every medium for learning available. An exceptional typist, she used brailewriters with amazing skill - sending and receiving letters from eight U.S. Presidents. What worlds would have been open to her, even more so, with the technology of today? How might she have opened our worlds of understanding were she here today with all that we have now?
