child,but at the age of two, Helen came down with scarlet fever that drove her to the edge of death, and left her blind and deaf. As time ran on she began to lose any speech abilities as well.
Helen, confused and permanatley alone in a world of
darkness raged and was a very tempermental child. Anne Sullivan (Right in picture), was a graduate student from Perkins school for the blind in Boston. Anne was hired to train and help Helen to learn to understand and communicate. This was very hard and took a very long time.
Eventually Anne reached out to Helen in a way no one else
ever had, Helen began to understand and when on to develop a well educated life, attending college at Cambridge University. She continued to help disabled children across the world until her death in June 1968. 4. William Shakespeare Shakespeare opened a
whole new window into literature and this world is still studied hundred's of years later.Shakespeare's work has made a lasting impression on later theatre and literature. In particular, he expanded the dramatic potential of characterisation, plot, language, and genre. Until Romeo and Juliet, for example, romance had not been viewed as a worthy topic for tragedy. 5.

1930, he is now 80 years old and retired.
Niel Armstrong was the first man to step
foot on the moon, he spent a total of 8 days, 14 hours, 12 minutes and 31 seconds on the moon's surface. Thousands of people across teh world, mostly American tuned in on television or the radio to view or listen to the event take place, for years it was thought unpossible to enter space, Amstrong proved the theory untrue.
This man is greatly influential because he
shows even the most unlikley events are still possible. "This is one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind."
