Being deaf means lacking the power of hearing or having impaired hearing. Being deaf may seem like a huge disadvantage or a handicap to some people, but I can assure you that the deaf community is very smart and extraordinary. Deaf people live the same lives as hearing people, they have families, jobs, play sports and even sing. They just do things a little different than hearing people. Through my posts hopefully I can give insight on what the deaf culture is capable of and maybe instill some compassion for deaf people in your hearts.
