Always loved history, because it actually tells us where we’ve been and what we’ll end up as,- unless we take care and maybe alter course before we “hit the iceberg”?
To me, one of the most inspirational figures was Helen Adams Keller:- American author, political activist, and lecturer. She was the first deaf-blind person to earn a bachelor of arts degree. Amazing! Helen was born on June 27, 1880 in Tuscumbia, Alabama. In 1882, she was stricken by an illness that left her blind and deaf. Beginning in 1887, Keller’s teacher, Anne Sullivan, helped her make tremendous progress with her ability to communicate, and Keller went on to college, graduating in 1904. In 1920, Keller helped found the ACLU. During her lifetime, she received many honors in recognition of her accomplishments.
Reading about her amazing accomplishments against all odds, inspired me to design and launch the digital download site “Hand Talk Designs”, to maybe help fill a need in the deaf community who are actually very “silent” about their wants and needs. We are very proud of the content of this site, and hope you’ll pay it a visit soon to browse the wonderful array of downloadable cards as well as additional graphics.
So hope to see you at //www.etsy.com/shop/HandTalkDesigns soon!
