Those people whose only experience of Helen Keller is The Miracle Worker will be surprised to discover her many dimensions. "My work for the blind," she wrote, "has never occupied a center in my personality. My sympathies are with all who struggle for justice." She was a tireless activist for racial and sexual equality...She was complex. Her main message was and is, "We're like everybody else. We're here to be able to live a life as full as any sighted person's. And it's O.K. to be ourselves."
That means we have the freedom to be as extraordinary as the sighted. Helen Keller loved an audience and wrote that she adored "the warm tide of human life pulsing round and round me" That's why the stage appealed to her, why she learned to speak and to deliver speeches. And to feel the vibrations of music, of the radio, or the movement of lips.
Pudong International Airport, now under construction, is located on the south bank of the Yangtze (Changjiang) estuary, covering an area of 32 square kilometres. To meet the demands of Shanghai's social and economic development for aviation services, the maximum design capacity of the airport is 80 million passengers and 5 million tons of freight annually. After the completion of the whole airport project, green space will account for over 50% of the area. Puuong International Airport is a gate open to the sky and a link connecting different parts of the world. As the 21st century is coming very near, man, nature, environment and construction will certainly develop in a harmonious and sustained way.
