Helen Keller Speaks Out

Helen Keller explains about her Greatest Disappointment in life….that she could not speak normally. Comments from people that have seen this video:

  • Truly remarkable person and her determination is breath taking.
  • An extraordinary and very moving clip about a great lady.
  • So amazing what the human being is capable of. Never being able to see or hear she was able to learn like the rest of us. She is able to express herself with words and very intelligently. A true example of no matter how hard things may be for us, there’s someone who has it worse and is trying harder to overcome their own obstacles.
  • Helen Keller is simply A LIVING MIRACLE.
  • She’s so inspiring!
  • This woman is amazing I’m blown away by her determination and faith to reach her goals.
  • It is truly inspirationalwhat Helen managed to accomplish, to even learn any form of language/ find the meaning of completely random movements seems impossible, yet she manages to speak quite well despite what she has had to overcome.  Her vocabulary is also much more developed than the majority of people today.  What is so incredible is that she still wanted to strive to be a better speaker, even after all that she had accomplished.
  • This is so amazing…
  • I can’t believe she learned to speak! SO INCREDIBLE! She’s truly an incredible person..so inspiring!

Helen Keller Speech

  • Helen Keller speech, re-enactment at a Lions International Convention at Cedar Point, Ohio, June 30, 1925. Dear Lions and Ladies:
  • I suppose you have heard the legend that represents opportunity as a capricious lady, who knocks at every door but once, and if the door isn’t opened quickly, she passes on, never to return. And that is as it should be. Lovely, desirable ladies won’t wait. You have to go out and grab ‘em……….Listen to the rest….

Helen Keller & Anne Sullivan (1930 Newsreel Footage)

  • Quite rare material.
  • Helen Keller, the American author, political activist and lecturer, whom I don’t have to explain much about, and her instructor and lifelong companion, Anne Sullivan, appears in a Vita phone newsreel from 1930. In this footage Sullivan shows the way how Helen Keller learned to talk. The final line of this footage, “I Am Not DUMB now!” is somewhat touching.
  • I know this footage have been shown on lots of more recent materials, but I was little bit surprised that nobody uploaded this before on YT except some clips, so I upload the full-length version.
