Anne Sullivan is the famous teacher who is known for teaching the deaf and blind mute Helen Keller. When she was five years old she contacted a rare disease which left her blind in one eye. She received her education at Perkins high school which was a school for the blind. She graduated and became a teacher to Keller at the age of twenty. She began teaching with Helen Keller when Helen was only seven. She thought her for 49 years. Within six months of teaching she had thought Keller over 575 words. She strongly suggested to Helen’s parents to send her to Perkins school where she could receive a proper education. When they agreed she took her to Boston and stayed with her there. However an accusation of plagiarism against Sullivan greatly upset her and she left the school and never returned again. She remained a close companion to Keller and still helped assisting her.  On may 3rd 1905 Sullivan married a  Harvard university instructor who helped Keller with her publications.  However they separated in 1914. She never remarried.

Fear

I think that fear is one of the most terrifying emotions to feel. It is a feeling that everybody experiences at some stage in their life. Some people may experience fear more than others. Fear is a sudden feeling of anxiety that you experience in the midst of something. Some people can control it better than others. However it isn’t something that can ever be cured as fear is something that lives inside all of us. It is part of a natural cycle of emotions and therefore we should not let it overpower us and destroy our minds and bodies.

Aging

Aging is something that happens to everyone. Everyday our bodies change and every minute we live we get older and older.  It is physically impossible for aging to be reversed. It is part of the natural cycle that our bodies go through. When some people age they go through dramatic changes for example teenagers. There bodies can completely change in less than a year. However for adults the natural cycle of aging slows down and it is rare for someone in there 30’s or 40’s to go through a dramatic change within a year.

Forgiveness

I think that forgiveness is such an important thing. If nobody ever accepted an apology then we would be living our entire lives in bitterness. Everybody will do something that they will regret and be sorry for more than once in their lives. Als0 by accepting someone’s apology can help bond people together to become even closer”

.If I had only one year to live and I knew that towards the end of it I would be greatly incapacitated I would make a bucket list of all the things that I would want to do before I die and get all of them done if possible. Things that I would do would include travelling, skydiving,  and skiing. These are things that I know I wouldn’t be able to do towards the end of the year. If my illness began in march I would start to plan to do things for April like travelling. Countries that I would love to travel to would be Italy, Australia, and America. I would spend April , May , and June exploring these countries. A huge fear of mine that I lived with my whole life is heights. I would love to conquer this fear before I die and therefore do something daring like skydiving. I would do this during the month of July.  I would also love to visit some of the worlds greatest landmarks which I would explore during the month of August. I would imagine that during September I would begin to get a lot sicker and therefore I would like to take time off travelling and spend the month visiting my family in Ireland.  During the months of November and December as I began to get sicker I would love to spend time relaxing at home and taking it easy for the winter. As the new year progressed I would be severely ill and therefore be spending my last few months in bed. I would take time out by watching old movies, reading and looking at photos and memories. This is what I would do if I had a year to live.
