Speak out to deaf ears.. We can all do our part and learn sign language!

Today I was searching on You Tube for some blogging inspiration. I came across this video that really opened my eyes to a new perspective of life. That is a life without sound.

Watch the video here and see what I mean.

Honestly I had never really given sign language much thought. In fact I have never really met anyone who was truly deaf.

Rachael’s short video really gave me a new perspective on this issue. Sometimes it is not until you see something from the source that it really starts to hit home.

We can all learn a lot from Rachael. In just 1 minute she has opened my eyes to a world without sound. I can barely imagine not having sound. Even the sound of typing as I write is somewhat soothing.

I must say I wish I had the strength and courage of many of those who are deaf. You are all an inspiration in the way you get on with your lives despite your problems!

As a worldwide community we need to take the inspiration given to us. I certainly know I would struggle without my hearing. The least we can do as a community is learn how to communicate with those who have lost their hearing. It can happen to anyone!

Here are some resources of places where you can learn to sign!
