Blind Ambition


“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart”
― Helen Keller



Such a beautiful title.

As for Hellen Keller, all I remember is, "Water Helen, waaater."


She used to be a unit in the curriculum I wrote for middle school. 2 movies to chose from, feminism and its role in a unified society, can you judge a society by the way it treats its handicapped, etc.

I doubt any substantive coverage of her now. Must not fit the "common core curriculum", which is the worst thing to ever to happen to education. Got some breaks; they threw out the  social studies test every 3-4 years.

Most effective propaganda campaign since WW II Germany.

H, FYI, I'm a retired male teacher who embraced the concept of feminism back in 1968- first time I heard Bernie Sanders, in Chicago. It's still,"Workers of the world unite..."


I heard of a blind girl who graduated with Bachelors of Science in Mathematics from a university that never offered “special facilities” for the disabled, even wheelchair ramps to get to the second or third floors of any building. I also heard of a deaf girl who graduated with Psychology; she read people’s lips to deal with lectures and discussions. To be both blind and deaf seems to be almost impossible without the infinite patience of Anne Sullivan.
