125th Aniversary of a miracle

It's been 125 years since Helen Keller learned to sign.  Celebrate and teach yourself.  Communicate with those who may not be able to hear or see as well.

The First 100 Signs at

Profile America -- Thursday, April 5th. One of the most compelling stories of the triumph of the human spirit began on this date 125 years ago. Anne Sullivan had been hired to teach 6-year-old Helen Keller, left blind and deaf from a severe illness when she was a toddler. While Keller was termed "unteachable," Sullivan persisted and reached her in just a month, teaching her the word "water" by holding her hand under a well pump and spelling the word in sign language on her palm. That incident unlocked what proved to be a fine mind and Keller went on to graduate from college, write books, and lecture around the world on behalf of the disabled. Now, there are more than 10 million Americans who have difficulty hearing and 6.5 million who have vision problems. Profile America is completing its 15th year as a public service of the U.S. Census Bureau.
