Face the Sunshine

One of my heroes is Helen Keller, so when I visited the National Cathedral some years ago, I wanted to see where she was buried. After asking a staff member I found her plaque in a small crypt off the Chapel of St. Joseph of Arimathea. You know her story, she became deaf and blind at a very young age. Only with the dedicated and patient help of her faithful teacher did she learn to communicate and to accomplish so much in her lifetime. She once said if you keep your face to the sunshine you can’t see the shadows. She couldn’t see the sunshine but she could feel it. Sometimes what you can’t see is what is most important of all.
