If any one in life had a right to self pity Hellen Keller. Helen Adams Keller was born on June 27, 1880, . When Helen Keller was 19 months old, she was afflicted by either scarlet fever or meningitis, which left her deaf and blind.
Keller was extremely intelligent and tried to understand her surroundings through touch, smell, and taste. She never felt victim to self-pity and became a worldwide respected author and lecturer.
She wrote, " Self-pity is our worst enemy and if we yield to it, we can never do anything wise in this world.
We are not Hellen Keller but we can learn from her. Our world provides us with ample choices so let's take advantage of them.
