Helen Keller

This is a short story of Helen Keller which is very thought provoking, read on …

"How do you account for your remarkable accomplishment in life?" Queen Victoria of England asked Helen Keller. "How do you explain the fact that even though you were both blind and deaf, you were able to accomplish so much?"

Ms. Keller's answer is a tribute to her dedicated teacher. "If it had not been for Anne Sullivan, the name of Helen Keller would have remained unknown."

Annie herself was in a difficult situation, locked up at a mental institution for being insane. An elderly nurse believed there was hope, and she committed herself to show love and kindness to Annie, and over a period of time, Annie was released.

Anne Sullivan grew into a young woman with a desire to help others as she, herself, was helped by the kindly nurse. It was she who in turn believed in Helen and saw a great potential, and brought out the best in Helen's life; but it was a loving nurse who first believed in Little Annie and lovingly transformed an uncommunicative child into a compassionate teacher.

And so the chain of love and kindness continues in bringing out the good and best in each one of us. Some times we may under estimate our acts of kindness. 

Here is a great inspiration for all of us to continue the chain of love and kindness. I have made a decision to be kind at all the times

No kind action ever stops with itself. One kind action leads to another. Good example is followed. A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees. The greatest work that kindness does to others is that it makes them kind themselves. – Amelia EarHart

Be Happy !
