Helen Keller

Mary Meegan Fanning

"The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched - they must be felt with the heart"

"The human person is the clearest reflection of God's presence in the world; all of the Church's work in pursuit of both justice and peace is designed to protect and promote the dignity of every person. Latin, English. Pope. [vatican city]: February 16, 2015.

- Helen worked for social justice in the United States- She demonstrated God's plan that we need to honor everyone's human dignity, no matter their personal disabilities- She proved that even with her disabilities she could achieve anything. - Being the first blind and deaf person to graduate college, she showed that we must have faith in all people - Her teaching corresponds with the foundational principle for a just society - She did this by showing that people with disabilities should have the same opportunities - Despite many doubts, she achieved greatness and showed that she could be an active person in society - With hard work, determination, and faith in God, Helen Keller was able to overcome obstacles and reach her goals- This teaches us that we should not underestimate any person because God has a plan for each of us -Also, that we must not persecute against anyone with a disability because they are just like us.

"Thou shalt not curse the deaf, nor put a stumblingblock before the blind, but shalt fear thy God: I am the LORD" (Leviticus 19:14)
