Ted Cruz ‘This is INSANE’
Deaf and blind Helen Keller belittled as ‘just another privileged white person’ in Time magazine
Helen Keller was severely impaired by an undiagnosed illness that caused her to go blind and deaf at the age of 19 months old. Despite her debilitating disabilities and a lack of resources available at the time, Keller would go on to become a champion of the deaf and blind by fundraising millions of dollars for those who are disabled. She became a successful writer, publishing 12 books, and would go around the country raising awareness of the plight of the disabled and fight for women’s suffrage.
