Helen Keller through Anne Sullivan

The world would not have had Helen Keller without Anne Sullivan. Here you see her explaining how she first started with helping Helen Keller communicate with the world. Anne Sullivan is much less well known, but she is no lesser than Helen Keller.

A good friend in Seattle brought this video to my attention. :-)

Judge Not.

Got this poem quite a few times in my mail and it is a welcomed reminder each time. I think it is a good idea to put it up here too. It would be a much better world if we learn to judge less.

I was shocked, confused, bewildered
As I entered Heaven's door,
Not by the beauty of it all,
Nor the lights or its decor.
But it was the folks in Heaven
Who made me sputter and gasp--
The thieves, the liars, the sinners,
The alcoholics and the trash.
There stood the kid from seventh grade
Who swiped my lunch money twice.
Next to him was my old neighbour
Who never said anything nice.
Herb, who I always thought
Was rotting away in hell,
Was sitting pretty on cloud nine,
Looking incredibly well.
I nudged Jesus, 'What's the deal?
I would love to hear Your take.
How'd all these sinners get up here?
God must've made a mistake.
'And why's everyone so quiet,
So sombre - give me a clue.'
'Hush, child,' He said, 'they're all in shock.
No one thought they'd be seeing you.'
Remember...Just going to church doesn't make you a Christian
any more than standing in your garage makes you a car .
Every saint has a PAST....
Every sinner has a FUTURE!
