The Story of My Life
The Story of My Life may be the most extraordinary autobiography ever written. Its author was only 22 when it was published, in 1903, but her life to that point had already been most uncommon: she had been rendered deaf, blind, and later mute by an illness at the age of 19 months, and only years later learned to read, speak, and understand others through the dedication of a teacher extraordinary in her own right.American author and activist HELEN ADAMS KELLER (1880-1968) became famous thanks to The Story of My Life, which was later adapted for stage and screen in various incarnations under the title The Miracle Worker, a reference to that special teacher, Annie Sullivan. Here, in her own words, is Keller's firsthand experience of the dawning of enlightenment on the severely isolated child she was, and her evolution into the educated and erudite young woman she became.

I loved this story. I watched it on t.v and it inspired me. It showed me how hard it can be, and how strong our faith is. God can take the most aweful times in our lives and turn it into a miracle. Hellen Keller was a great example of faith, and her teacher a great teacher of patients and never gave up on Hellen no matter what. Her teacher showed how love is the answer and going distances is very important. Also that we are all responsible for each other and should help no matter what the cost is, in order to save a life. Hellen Keller was not healed physically by God, but I believe she can be, but God chose not to in order to use Hellen as a inspiring example for others through her disability. I admire you mrs Keller God Bless you always.
