Helen Keller

I always look for heroes to admire.

Helen Keller, and those who cared for Helen, especially Anne Sullivan are people worthy of admiration.

Helen Keller was not born blind and deaf; it was not until she was 19 months old that she contracted an illness which left her deaf and blind.

I read this quote from Helen Keller and felt inspired.

I want to say to those who are trying to learn to speak and those who are teaching them: Be of good cheer.

Do not think of today’s failures, but of the success that may come tomorrow.

Shame Marginalizes

Posted on Friday, October 7, 2011 in Emotional, Relational, Social, Spiritual, Values

Shame minimizes one’s true self.

Healthy communities promote genuineness and humanity.

Amy and I are blessed.  We live in Brooklyn Park, MN and have great neighbors on either side of us.  Tyko, Anika, Kamroon and Tia live to the North. Melissa and Steve to our South. 

Ignorantly, both families could be marginalized by segments of our society.

Shame Marginalizes Through Blindness

Tyko, Anika, Kamroon and Tia look different and sound different than their neighbors.  At a glance they are different.  On the other hand, their differences from Amy and I might surprise you.
