"We are the Helen Keller Foundation. We have faith that sight can be saved. That hearing can be saved. That human dignity can be saved. That grace and innocence can be saved. No pessimist ever discovered the secret of the stars, or sailed to uncharted seas, or opened new doorways to the human spirit."

Hellen Keller, age 8 yrs., with her first teacher, Anne Sullivan.

Her first spoken word was "doll".
