National Association of the Deaf: It’s Time!

I know that I have written a couple or three about the organization, National Association of the Deaf (NAD) but I have not written anything about National Association of the Deaf for a few months and I believe that I must write another one as this is important that I talk about National Association of the Deaf a bit. Before I get into it, I want to share a bit information about the organization calls National Association of the Deaf or NAD for short with some of you guys and mix history with it a little. National Association of the Deaf is a civil rights and human rights organization just like some of other organizations such as National Rifle Association that represents for the people who owns guns for hunting or for protection. National Association of the Deaf represents for the Deaf community, people who are Deaf and Hard of Hearing. I am Deaf myself, I am one of over a million Deaf people here in the United States who happens to be oppressed and discriminated daily so National Association of the Deaf is there to make sure that the Deaf community have the same rights as everybody else. That sounds all good doesn’t it? That we have an organization who protect our rights as Deaf American and making sure that we have equal access that everybody else has such as having access to a phone that we can make a call to anyone we wish with a technology that was invented for our use calls Video Relay Service, making sure that we can have the same pleasure watching some movies or television shows on our television with closed captions just the same way for others with audio.

Dear President-Elect Donald Trump

Dear President-Elect Donald Trump.

I have thought for several hours on whether I should bother to write this or not but I have decided that a few important matters cannot be as easily dismissed so I have decided to write this public letter to you, President-Elect Donald Trump. Before I can begin, I would like to say that you may or may not acknowledge that I am not a fan of you being one of candidates for presidency here the United States and on my conscience I could not simply vote you to become the next President of the United States. I am one of millions who have voted Hillary Clinton to become the 45th President of the United States, while you understand that I have the right to vote whomever I feel that the person would be better at presidency than any other candidates including yourself but unfortunately Hillary Clinton could not get enough electoral votes. Though the candidate I voted for may have lost the presidency does not means that I would not accept that you have won the presidency, I humbly accept you to be the next President of the United States and I am looking forward to what you can do for the Americans. The reason I rooted and voted for Hillary Clinton is because I am a Democrat but if I was a Republican then you would have been my choice but I share the interests and ideology more with the Democratic party than I am with Republican party though. Nonetheless I would like to congratulate you on your win for presidency here in the United States, I hope that what you said throughout your campaign that you want the government to be for, of and by the people instead of for the, of and by the business or corporations which is what Republicans are known for in my opinion but I hope that you prove me wrong with that as I am giving you a chance.

Deaf Awareness Month: September

I know that lately I have written a few articles that is Deaf and Hard of Hearing related but the reason is the Deaf Awareness Month were to due in the month September which is the current month now. The purpose for Deaf Awareness Month in September is to educate the people about the culture of Deaf and Hard of Hearing people, people who is audism are trying so hard to destroy for several decades now. Even though the Deaf community may be a little but it has a strength in holding their place when it comes to anyone that is trying all their best to make sure everybody is not aware that the Deaf and Hard of Hearing has their culture as they want to frame them with the label disability. As I am part in the Deaf community, the battles with audism daily is tiresome and frustrating because one of many reasons is that we never gave the permission to anybody to make any decision for us especially on state or nation’s level. So many of the people thinks that anyone who is Deaf or Hard of Hearing means that there is something wrong with them, hence the label disability but what they don’t realize it is not disability when it is a culture and there is some family who have every generations that happens to be Deaf or Hard of Hearing which is a beautiful thing. That is where the lack of education comes in, the lack of education is due to some organizations such as Alexander Graham Bell Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing or people who is audism. The label disability is for anyone who is paralyzed, limbs amputation, have limit or none in their movements.

Complaints Of The Day (7/19/’16)

Who doesn’t complain these days? I think it is safe to say that every one of us at least complain about one thing each day, because if you don’t have anything to complain about each day then either that you aren’t alive or that you are a king or queen who have everybody does everything perfect for you every day and every night. We always have something to complain everyday, whether it be because you are coming home from work being very exhausted, you are being in pain, you are not getting what you need, you have discovered that your favorite television shows isn’t going to be renewed for the next season or something so you always have to complain about something everyday. The less complaints you have then it means that you have a great life who have everything, owns several things, are a millionaire or billionaire and visa versa although even these millionaire(s) or billionaire(s) do have something to complain daily too including the president, prime minister, king and queen of a nation. So I am going to list my complaints of the day here, I have thought of blogging my daily complaints but that would be too much because my schedules is crazy busy but I might do my “complaints of the day” here and there especially when a day that have a lot of complaints or gathered all of complaints I had from each week. Nonetheless there are always something to complain no matter what your background is and some of the people would say that you always complains but what they don’t realize is that they complains too even though they may deny it themselves.

Language Deprivation.

Language is a very important tool for communication otherwise we as human beings would not have a way to communicate with each others, pardon me I am actually wrong because as I wrote that I just realized that the human beings can communicate with each others using gestures or by visual but still a language is what makes it easier for us human beings to communicate with each others and thankfully there is a very long list of languages that allows us human beings to communicate with each others. Each language is in within’ our DNA, in other words our native language that we inherited from the earlier generations or the first language that we learned after the birth so that we can be able to communicate with our parents or to kickstart our education because without language then how are we able to learn? The language is very essential in our life, the language that we comfortably understand and communicate smoothly with others. Now there are a very large group, some organizations and even corporations always set out to make sure that we communicate using their language preference such as English here in the United States therefore they are on the look to deprive our native language by trying their darndest best to convince many of us human beings that their language preference will make us more successful in a long run than our own native language that we inherited from the many generations of our families or to try to come up with false medical information such as saying that using our own native language over their language preference will cause us to have a brain cancer or similar (it’s true, Starkey Foundation is one perfect example of that).

AG Bell’s Response about Nyle DiMarco.

A few days ago recently, an anti-cultural organization have written a public response to the Washington’s Post in regards to a proudly Deaf gentleman Nyle DiMarco who succeeds in the television industry such as America’s Next Top Model and now on Dancing With the Stars; Nyle DiMarco’s statements about the importance in Deaf or Hard of Hearing children to learn American Sign Language at an early age. AG Bell founded by the same person who invented your telephone, Alexander Graham Bell who founded an organization (association) calls Alexander Graham Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing but in reality it is the organization who degrades the Deaf community for many decades along with many of other things that the organization have done to the Deaf community very harshly so for that it has become the public enemy in the eyes of Deaf community. AG Bell have issued a public response to Washington Post article as it is what AG Bell do their best which is oppress or degrade anybody who is Deaf or Hard of Hearing by saying that the statement Nyle DiMarco made which is “There are many deaf kids out there being deprived of their own language” is a myth and then started off lying by implying that American Sign Language is declining. It would be better off with you reading the response by AG Bell and not me telling you what they are saying because that response by AG Bell have angered the Deaf community and I am proud to say that I am part of the Deaf community.
