Helen Keller's Graduation



In keeping with the Golden Rule Days Theme of Shades Of The Departed Magazine, I give you Helen Keller in her cap and gown. Below is an excerpt of an essay she wrote upon her graduation. I admire her optimism.

"As my college days draw to a close, I find myself looking forward with beating heart and bright anticipations to what the future holds of activity for me. My share in the work of the world may be limited, but the fact that it is work makes it precious. Nay, the desire and will to work is optimism itself."

Great Issue. Glad to have you back. Really enjoy the process of repairing photo. Gives insight on what to think about when working with Photoshop. Thanks and keep up the good work on the Magazine. Looking forward to the August issue.
