Fact of the Day: Helen Keller Illness.

While she was not born deaf or blind, it is technically unknown what made her go deaf and blind. From the stories of how she got sick, it's probable that it was either scarlet fever or meningitis.

  8. I also thought she was born that way. It's so amazing that she was able to overcome her handicap as she did. She did have a wonderful teacher.

  9. A junior high school friend of mine played the young Helen Keller in the play "The Miracle Worker" at Acadia University. I'll never forget the moment in the play when her governess Annie Sullivan breaks through to Helen at the water pump and Helen realizes that signing has meaning. My friend Judy was amazing. Helen Keller is truly an inspiration, and she reminds us of the inherent value in all human lives.
