What She Said

“Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.”

Today’s quote comes from Helen Keller. Ms. Keller, left deaf and blind from an illness contracted when she was nineteen months old, became a vocal champion for many issues still being discussed and debated today—woman’s suffrage, labor rights, socialism, and antimilitarism.

Fifty-plus years after her passing, Helen’s message has been condensed to a hashtag—AloneTogether. This is all well and good, however, remember words are just words unless followed by action. 

I think AloneTogether is our new global mantra. Believe it. Recite it. Practice it. Now and always.
