Helen Keller, perhaps the most famous person in recent history who was both completely blind and totally deaf, was asked once which sense she would want back if she had a choice. Her response was “my hearing”. When asked why she would prefer to hear rather than see, she apparently said this:
“BLINDNESS TAXES OUR COMPASSION, OF WHICH WE HAVE MUCH. DEAFNESS TAXES OUR PATIENCE, OF WHICH WE HAVE LITTLE.”
As I recover from cochlear implant surgery I am asking for your patience. Watch for more posts coming soon!
