Those who enjoy outer beauty may suffer inner ugliness, and those who have keen eyesight may not hear very well. God has not given perfection to anyone.

She had a good education and was a top student. She even wrote a book called “The Story of My Life" when she was twenty-two years old. She has grown to become the miracle child. Even though god may deprive us from particulars abilities, hope should never be lost. If you look deep enough you will always find some rays of hope.

We should consider Helen as the brightest example of the humans’ unlimited potentials.
