Gallaudet University marked 150 years.

The first and well-known university for deaf and hard of hearing Gallaudet University marks 150 years and is celebrating for it ever since the day the 16th president for United States of America signed a bill titled 13th amendment to the constitution on April 8th, 1864 that the senate approved of to end the slavery and had the moment to sign a bill of interest to senate committee on the district of Columbia and educators in the nation’s capital. Which that authorized Columbia institution for the deaf and dumb and the blind to award degrees in the liberal arts and sciences.

This is one of the reason I am very proud America that resided in United States of America for more than twenty-seven (27) years and that the bill is very important to deaf and hard of hearing especially giving them the same rights that hearing (people who can hear) have in United States of America. That same bill that happens to be America with Disabilities Act (ADA) that’s being used today that every deaf and hard of hearing use as their right. If it weren’t for Lincoln Abraham then it’s very possible that we may not have the bill that deaf and hard of hearing rely on for our rights today which is ADA, that is our rights to be earned as America and present as America.

I would like to give a big thanks to Lincoln Abraham for signing the bill otherwise America with Disabilities Act (ADA) may not exist today, sure it’s better than what the bill once was in the era of Lincoln Abraham but he was the one who started it and several years many of presidents has added more sections in ADA which has drastically improved for better however there may be few of things that we do disagree with but without that we wouldn’t be able to do what we can do today or to have the rights to do that the people who can hear has because several years ago people would consider deaf and hard of hearing broken as if it’s a disease and it was quite unfair until Lincoln Abraham signed that bill.

However sadly there are still many of people who don’t understand what is deaf or hard of hearing because most of company that hire for jobs discriminate the deaf and hard of hearing even though we do have the rights to take them to the court for discriminating us just because we cannot hear. Like there is several deaf and hard of hearing people including myself have to repeated the quote several times such as “we can do anything like any of you can do except we cannot hear” which is true because that’s exactly what it is. We just can’t hear but we have same arms and legs and work ethic like many of “hearing” people does. Only in fact there is a science proven that the deaf and hard of hearing have high sense in our eyes, we have very sharp focus more than any of you can ever imagine. We are alerted and learn through our eyes just the way hearing people are alerted and learn through their ears that’s only the difference between the deaf and hard of hearing and hearing.

Here’s an article that I was reading which is quite good article about Gallaudet University in Washington about celebrating 150th year: Gallaudet University marks 150 years since Lincoln signed a bill for deaf higher education.

The reason I wanted to write this article is because I am celebrating it as well even though I am not nor ever been a student at that university however one day I would like to visit. Gallaudet University are located in Washington, DC. Gallaudet University is very well-known university to everyone in America especially that it’s recognized as deaf and hard of hearing only university although there is more university for deaf and hard of hearing now but if it wasn’t for Gallaudet University then maybe we may have no university or even an education for deaf and hard of hearing. Thank you for reading this article and I hope that every one of you have a great day and be sure to keep checking back here in case if there’s another new article being posted on here at JoshiesWorld.
