This comment is for a previous blog post on Helen Keller. My 11 year old was reading a biography about her over the last couple of weeks and was so moved that she requested permission from her Foundations tutor to talk about Helen Keller for her presentation. She read and researched and wrote her paper, gathered visuals from the school for the blind in Kentucky. It made a profound impression on her and I must say, there has been very, very little complaining this week about work! Emily Bowers, Lexington NC
