A Precious Moment

How cool is this..a picture of Helen Keller and her teacher was found after all these years. What an amazing person Helen was to endure 88 years of life without sound or sight. And her teacher stuck by her all her life. Amazing people, amazing lives.

This 1888 photo released by the New England Historic Genealogical Society in Boston shows Helen Keller when she was eight years old, left, holding hands with her teacher, Anne Sullivan, during a summer vacation to Brewster, Mass., on Cape Cod. A staff member at the society discovered the photograph in a large photography collection recently donated to the society. When Sullivan arrived at the Keller household to teach Helen, she gave her a doll as a present. Although Keller had many dolls throughout her childhood, this is believed to be the first known photograph of Helen Keller with one of her dolls
