Optimism – Essay by Helen Keller

Helen Adams Keller was an American writer and social activist. An illness (possibly scarlet fever or meningitis) at the age of 19 months made her deaf and blind. With the help of Annie Sullivan, her teacher, she learned to speak, read, write, and inhabit the life of the mind with such grace and fierceness that made her one of history’s most inspired intellectual heroes.
