The Story of My Life shows, Helen Keller’s life is no miracle.  It is a tremendous achievement.  It is destined to be imprisoned in darkness and isolation for the rest of her life, Helen built upon the brilliant work of her teacher, Anne Sullivan, to become an inter-nationally recognized and respected figure.  In 1908 Helen published The World I Live In, an account of how she experienced the world through touch, taste and scent.  In magazine articles she advocated for increased opportunities for the blind and for improving methods of reducing childhood blindness.  In 1909, Helen joined the Socialist Party of Massachusetts and supported many progressive era causes, including birth control, labour unions and the right of women to vote.  In 1924, her popularity somewhat recovered, Helen began working as a lecturer fund-raiser for the American Foundation for the Blind (AFB).Helen was devastated when her companion Anne Sullivan died in 1936.  After the Second World War she toured more than thirty countries, continuing her advocacy for the blind.  In 1955, she published the biography of Anne Sullivan “Teacher”, and in 1957 “The Open door”, a collection of essays.  In 1964 she was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian honor, by President Lyndon Johnson.  On 1st June, 1968, she died at her home in Arcane Ridge (:
