Helen Keller quote:  With our hearts let us 
see, with your hands let us break every chain.  Then, indeed, shall we know 
a better and nobler humanity. Disability is not a 'brave struggle' or 
'courage in the face of adversity'... disability is an art.  It's an 
ingenious way to live. Wheelchair icon Title:  Disability Social History Project Figure icon
