Helen Keller and Deaf-Blind Education

(NY)

I would like to choose Helen Keller. Working as a volunteer for a non profit religious organization that regularly produces, makes and distributes thousands of American Sign Language DVD’s and Braille publications for Deaf and deaf-blind all over the world, I have had the opportunity to read Helen’s life story and share her story with visitors that tour our printery.

I chose Helen Keller not only because I was impressed with her remarkable life accomplishments, but because I personally know many deaf blind friends like her that show a remarkable zeal for their beliefs. These ones are from all walks of life and although many live in the United States, countless other friends live in countries that are less fortunate of government funding. Yet all of them, no matter what their status demonstrate everyday and to many onlookers that by having a self sacrificing spirit and trust in God, they are very confident that they can help and encourage people of all walks of life to have a happy satisfying life now, and a wonderful hope for the future.

They devote many hours to personal study of the Bible in Braille and American Sign language and consider it a blessing to have many good examples of like faith. They voluntarily make every effort where deaf and blind can be contacted, starting with their friends, family and even so called prominent and influential people to insure that they benefit from a well rounded education of the Bible by making good use of American Sign Language videos, Braille publications and any other technology available. Although they respect the contributions of Helen Keller and other historical Deaf figures that have made Deaf culture what it is today, they are impartial to all people both in the hearing world and Deaf world.

I value all the accomplishments made in the deaf community and love the deaf with all my heart. This is why I have dedicated much time to learning and improving my signing skill in an effort to encourage and support them. Thank you for providing your website for free. It is truly educational!
