ďLife is daring adventure or nothing.íí

Imagine not seeing, hearing or talking to people around you and youíre scared. Thatís what it was for a girl named Helen Keller.
Helen Keller was born on June 27,1880. Helen Keller birthplace was Tuscumbia, Alabama. Helen Keller died in June 1, 1968. When she was six she couldnít talk, see and hear. Annie Sullivan, Helenís teacher, taught her sign language. Annie was married and didnít have kids. Annie was by Helenís side for 50 years. Helen Keller talked to her friendís in sign language. Helenís friends talked to her by putting letters on her hand. Helen Keller had a dog and loved her dog and loved her dog for and her sister. Helen didnít get married.
Imagining myself to not see, hear and talk was very scary. But learning about Helen Keller and Annie Sullivan was amazing. Hope you were amazed too.
