    Missy Keast, I understand what you mean. Martin Luther King did struggle for blacks. The blacks including the NCAAP started becoming his warriors. Everyone of us in the deaf community should be a warrior even though we do not know who our deaf leader similiar to Martin Luther King is. We should not give up. In fact, the government does not know what to do with deaf people. So they send us home with SSI checks and shut up. How sad!

      I agree with you. We need a Deaf leader in our community to continue fighting for the better system. In the past, we had the great leaders but they were considered “unheard of heroes” but now in this present time, we do have the greatest Deaf leaders yet they need to be recognized the whole time. Keep fighting, deaf people! Be humble but proud warriors!!

  • I want to share two famous quotes that I saw and always keep these quotes in my head and heart. First quote: “As a Deaf Person, I have a Full Time Job!” and Second Quote: “United We Stand, Divided We Fall!” These two quotes are very important part of my IDENTITY as a DEAF PERSON and I teach ASL courses to undergraduate students at York University. I agree with you that today is a very SERIOUS CRISIS in the DEAF EDUCATION and DEAF COMMUNITY versus AUDIST COMMUNITY! We will always be WARRIORS and FIGHT for our RIGHTS in ASL-ENGLISH BILINGUAL EDUCATION EVERYWHERE!
