To quote Helen Keller, “Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it.” I participated in a disabled children’s rally where I witnessed this wonderful scene of a deaf and mute girl guiding a blind boy. It reminds me that none of us are perfect, and we all need different skills and ways of thinking to solve complex contemporary problems. There is so much to learn just by observing those who depend on each other like these two.
