Just had to go and look up Helen Keller on Wikipedia after reading that - I knew the basics of her early life from the movie about her, but I didn't know what a committed social activist she was. What a woman!
I'm about to send this link to my godson, who is slacking on his degree course in his final year as a firm and loving kick up the backside to get over himself and get on with things. If Helen Keller can overcome deafness and blindness to get a degree, he can overcome chronic procrastination.
Thanks Quarry! You've inspired me to get over my bad self too and go take the Wordchick to the museum!
