Helen Keller's Vision

Hellen Keller, the famous deafblind woman who was taught to speak by Annie Sullivan, who broke through the isolation imposed by a near complete lack of language, allowing the girl to blossom as she learned to communicate, has become known worldwide through the dramatic depictions of the play and film The Miracle Worker. (Wikipedia)

Keller (June 27, 1880 – June 1, 1968) was an American author, political activist and lecturer. A prolific author, Keller was well traveled and was outspoken in her opposition to war. She campaigned for women's suffrage, workers' rights, and socialism, as well as many other progressive causes.

I found this famous citation of hers as I visited The Path Series trailer:

"Death is no more than passing from one room into another. But there's a difference for me, you know. Because in that other room I shall be able to see."

What Keller intimates in that quote is something that is dealt with in depth in the movie The Path Series. This film is about the afterlife, a topic that makes many uncomfortable, and yet for those that have entered this area of study in depth, it does quite the contrary: it makes them very comfortable, as they have come to realize: to believe, that death truly is not more than passing from one room to another, and that what lies on the other side, in the other room, is something that is filled with life.
