Even though it sounds kind of corny, Helen Keller should be an inspiration to everyone, not just those challenged ones. She was denied TWO things that the average person takes for granted: hearing and eyesight. However even with her hardships, she still held her head high and achieved greatness!

As a second year college student myself, I cannot even begin to understand how this STRONG young woman would go on to earn a college degree. It is amazing enough that as a woman she achieved such marvelous things, but to have THREE different things going against her, WOW!!!!!!

I wish every person in this great world was as determined as she had to have been. I wish I could have the determination that she possessed. I am not sure even if I was faced with just one of her challenges, that I would be able to continue to seek my degree! Or even that I would have been presented with the challenge to seek my degree in the first place.

I think every person faced with a difficult road through college or even high school should take note of the Helen Keller story. Ms. Helen Keller deserves to be looked at as not only an inspiration to the challenged, but an inspiration to each and every individual who wants to achieve greatness! LET NOTHING STAND IN YOUR WAY!!!!
