    This makes anything I have or will accomplish very small. And any desires, however great or important I think they are, much much less. The desire to participate in life to our fullest abilities is magnificently infinite! The small things are what makes life grand, no matter the effort required. WOW!! Thank you so much for posting this Ann! The smile that comes to Keller’s face as she speaks brought chills into me as deep as they could possibly go and what she was feeling was directly wired into my soul.

    When I was in Jr. High School, we learned all about Helen Keller — including her socialist activism (I had a very cool social studies teacher). I wonder if they still teach about her in public schools?
