After reading the Helen Keller narrative, it is easier for me to understand the struggles she went through. I can not imagine the strength and patience someone would have to have to handle being blind and deaf. Losing one sense would be tramatic, but to lose two, words cannot describe how difficult it would be. I admire her for not giving up and continuing her search for knowledge and to understand the things that are around us. She is someone to look up to and also a reminder that life could be a lot more challenging than it already is.
