Helen Keller Inspires

Posted on September 25, 2011


Today’s Sunday Sign is a quote from Helen Keller.

Runners in the Helen Keller Festival 5-mile run passed by this school sign near the halfway point of the June 2010 race.

The message provided a nice boost to my spirit as I ran past that very hot, humid morning. A few days later, I drove by with my camera and snapped several pictures of the sign.

Helen Keller’s words remind us that we can choose to soar. We don’t always choose our circumstances, but we do choose how we respond to those circumstances.

Don’t sleepwalk through your life. Don’t creep along in trepidation or resignation. Choose to soar.

The Sunday Sign is a weekly feature of The Ben Franklin Follies.
