One hundred and thirty-three years ago, an incredible woman was born. Her name was Helen Keller, and soon that very name would be recognizable in most households. Her ability to overcome obstacles has inspired generations.
Of course you all know her story. Today, we would like to celebrate her life. She was a remarkable woman who stood as a powerful example of how determination, hard work, and imagination can enable an individual to triumph over adversity. She not only learned how to communicate with others, she blossomed into a well respected, world-renowned activist who actively campaigned for the betterment of others.
We honor a woman who showed us how much an individual can accomplish even with severe handicaps. She was clearly a woman who helped to Make a Better World!
