Louis Braille

By Jennifer Kenny
1     Did you ever wonder what inspires someone to come up with a new invention? A need does. Did you ever wonder what motivates someone who is faced with a hardship? The yearning for the best possible life does. Understanding these two things helps explain the life of Louis Braille.
 
2     Louis Braille was born on January 4, 1809. He was born in Coupvray, France, which is located close to Paris. He was the fourth child born to Simon-Rene and Monique Braille.
 
3     Louis was a bright and inquisitive child. When he was three, he went into his father's workshop. His father was a harness and saddle maker. He picked up an awl, which is a sharp tool for making holes, and he hurt his left eye with the awl when it slid. Then it became infected. The infection spread to his other eye. As a result of the infection, he became blind.
