Everything has its wonders, even darkness and silence.

Helen Keller

Helen Keller was left blind and deaf after an illness at a very young age, yet she overcame her challenges and became a renowned author and advocate for people with disabilities. Her perspective on life and her ability to find meaning and contentment in the face of adversity informed her work — and are a major part of her legacy. For her, darkness and silence represented the limits of her sensory experience, but she was able to explore the wonders of connection, communication, and understanding through other senses. Keller’s words are an enduring reminder that every experience, no matter how challenging, comes with its own beauty and opportunities.
