Have you ever wanted to make a difference in something you felt so passionate about? If so please share with us your story of how you wanted to make a difference and what actions you might have taken. I must say that watching Switched at Birth’s all ASL episode made me think about how much of a difference someone can make in this world. As I watched this show, it made me think how much more of an impact there can be when you get a group of people that have the same passion for something as you do.
There are many days that go by that I hope I am making a difference in someone’s life with my website Deaf Insight or with this blog Insight Variety. I look back to everything I have ever learned as a student of the Deaf community. I still call myself a student ,because I feel like I am forever learning about the culture of the deaf, because I am never going to be a completely a part of it since I am personally not deaf or hard of hearing. My deaf cousins, deaf friends, deaf teachers and many more people have truly touched my heart in so many ways. They opened up my eyes to a community that I feel has blessed me with so much knowledge. Through Deaf Insight and Insight Variety I want to touch the hearts of many just how the Deaf community has done for me. I want to take what I have learned and pass it on to each person that click on the links that direct them to my pages.
My question to you all is with all the knowledge the Deaf Insight Bloggers and I have about the Deaf community, culture, and language. What is something you want to learn? I want to know what you the audience want, because we are all here because of you. We are here for the people that want to spread the word about the Deaf culture and for the people that want to learn about that culture. Leave a comment below about what kind of new things you want to learn or what kind of things you want me to write about to help teach others. You can either leave a comment below or email at firstname.lastname@example.org with subject "Making a Difference."
The kids at Carlton on Switched at Birth are trying to make a difference to keep their school open. Let's all take the chance at making the difference in this world too. Each person out there share a fact with two people and those two people share with two people and after awhile the number of people that know these facts about the Deaf will grow. With your help Insight Variety, Deaf Insight, 2Forever Friends and all the other great groups out there will be able to reach even more people all over the globe.
*Take a chance, because you never know how great it will become!*
