The most beautiful thing

Did you enjoy the video?
there is a quote by Hellen Keller at the end.
here you have one more:
Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.
But what do you know about Helle Keller?
Hellen Keller (1880-1968) was blind, deaf and mute since she was two years old. Fortunately, Anne Sullivan became Helen's teacher, and devoted herself to teach her. That changed Hellen's life: After great efforts, she learnt how to speak and communicate with the world.
She studied and became the first deaf blind person to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree. Later she gave a lot of speeches and lectures,  Helen Keller worked throughout her long life to achieve social justice; she was an integral part of many social movements in the 20th century: she was a suffragette and fought for the rights of women and people with disabilities, she also promoted laws to help the education of blind and deaf-blind people, she campaigned against child labour and was a pacifist.
Today, she is remembered as a child who overcame the obstacles of being deaf and blind but we can't forget the woman who worked during her life to achieve justice for people, equal rights for women, and to end war.
