エンジョイシンプルイングリッシュ 12/1
アン・サリバン/Anne Sullivan

The miracle worker is the title of the movie about Helen Keller and her teacher Anne Sullivan. 

Many people in Japan may think that Helen is the miracle worker.

But in America, the miracle worker usually means her teacher, Anne Sullivan.

 

Anne’s life was never easy.

Her mother died when she was only 8 years old.

Her father put Anne and her little brother in a poor house and then disappeared.

 

This poor house was dirty and too crowded.

Soon her brother died.

 

Anne could not see very well so she didn’t get the chance to learn much.

When she was 14 years old, people from a local government visited the poor house and told them her wish to learn more.

 

After a while, her wish came true.

And she went to study at the Perkins School for the blind.

 

Anne had never been to school and did not know the rules.

She became angry quickly and often got into trouble.

 

By 1882, Anne had had several surgeries on her eyes. 

Her eyes are now good enough for reading.

It was almost like a dream come true.

 

From then on, Anne studied hard.

When she was 20 years old, she graduated from Perkins as the top student.

She said in her speech,

 

“When you learn something you help both yourself and society.

If you are not learning you are hurting society”

 

After graduating from Perkins, Anne met Helen and became her teacher.

Everyone knows Helen worked hard to overcome her handicaps.

But Anne worked just as hard to help Helen.

 

When Helen was studying at Radcliffe College, Anne became Helen’s eyes and ears.

She read all of Helen’s textbooks and wrote down everything the teacher said.

Then she told this information to Helen by using sign language.

 

The work was difficult but because they worked together, Helen was able to graduate.

Helen’s wish to help society was Anne’s wish as well.

Anne continued to support Helen after college.

But Anne became sick.

 

In 1936, Helen was asked to come to Japan to talk about helping people who were blind.

Helen did not want to leave Anne.

But Anne said,

 

“Promise me that you would help the blind people in Japan.”

 

In October 1936, Anne died at the age of 70.

Helen was heartbroken by the death of the teacher she loved.

 

But 6 months later, Helen went to Japan.

She wanted to keep her promise to Anne.

 

Helen’s visit may the Japanese understand the importance of helping people with difficulties.

Anne did not live to see all the changes Helen made in society.

But she will always be remembered as the miracle worker who helped Helen to be so successful.
