Born Today in 1880!

Our very own Alabamian, Helen Keller!

Literature is my Utopia. Here I am not disenfranchised. No barrier of the senses shuts me out from the sweet, gracious discourses of my book friends. They talk to me without embarrassment or awkwardness.

~ Helen Keller

I love the quote!

Another great one by H.K.--"I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish small tasks as if they were great and noble."
We're from the same place--Tuscumbia--our claim to fame. :)

Thanks Robin!

Good one Tiffany! She's one smart cookie.

We can all make a difference if we just remember it takes little steps to get there. Are there any tru overnight sensations? ;D

I have so much respect for Helen Keller! I didn't realize June 27 was her birthday. It's mine, too!
