Doctors euthanize deaf Belgian identical twins who could not bear to go blind
Imagine if Helen Keller, blind and deaf, had been euthanized. The world would have been a poorer place without her; she contributed so much.

This review is from: The World I Live In (New York Review Books Classics) (Paperback)What beautiful writing! It's pointed out in the intro that, more than most of us, her world was shaped with WORDS. I've only read about four essays so far, and am profoundly touched. I've always admired Helen Keller, but am newly re-impressed with her wisdom and vision, and touched that she can write so clearly as to make me feel how little she felt limited by her handicap. If Helen Keller had simply learned to behave and ask politely for her food, etc, it would have been an impressive accomplishment. The fact that she grew to fully embrace her intelligence, her world and her potential . . . wow. I know so many people who are content to just do the bare minimum, to not stretch their limits at all, to not show any intellectual curiosity . . . she had the perfect excuse to exert the least effort, yet she didn't. Once she was given the key, the entree to humanity, she didn't let her handicaps stop her. I love that even all these years later, she is still able to share that.What a wonderful person and inspiration she was; Her courageousness, her insight were an inspiration to many.
We could learn a lot from her life story.
Belgian twins euthanized after finding out they would soon go blind | World | News | National Post:
Identical twins have been killed by Belgian doctors in a unique case under the country’s euthanasia laws.
The 45-year-old brothers from the Antwerp region were born deaf and sought euthanasia after finding out that they would soon go blind. They told doctors that they were unable to bear the thought of not being able to see each other again.
"Listen to My words only, My daughter. Don't listen to the voice of the world. I will be leading you in ways you know not of. I will be imparting to you knowledge and wisdom you know not of. I will be strengthening you in your faith and your love for others. I will be equipping all My children for these coming days. You will not be walking blindly into these times, for I will not allow it. I am your Provider and I provide all the needs of My children. All my faithful children will require much wisdom in the coming days. It is imperative that you stay close to Me and listen for My words to you, to keep you on the path I have for you. You have read much of what is coming on the earth soon, My daughter, and you will not be ill equipped. Stay focused on Me and on My Word to bring you through.
Remember that the plan of the enemy is great deception that could fool even the elect, if they are not centred in Me. Only those who are centred in Me and in My love will come through these times. As I have told you in the past, there is to be a short span of darkness you need to walk through before I come for My Bride. Fear not, all will be provided to you. Just believe and trust in Me, your Lord and Saviour."
James: 1:2-8 (NJKV) - Profiting from Trials
2 My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, 3 knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. 4 But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. 5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. 6 But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. 7 For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; 8 he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.
2 Thessalonians 2:1-12 (NKJV) - The Great Apostasy
1Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, 2 not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come. 3 Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, 4 who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.
5 Do you not remember that when I was still with you I told you these things? 6 And now you know what is restraining, that he may be revealed in his own time. 7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way. 8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming. 9 The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, 10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, 12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
