I have felt like we need to reach out to the deaf and hard of hearing more than we do. I have decided that whenever I am in a group of people and the speaker says, "Can you all hear, do I have to use the microphone?" that I will request they use the microphone. Because probably there is someone there who didn't hear the question. It is the same thing for when they ask if someone needs subtitles for the movie. We would extend kindness and help to someone in a wheelchair or on crutches. Let's do the same for disabilities that are not so visible.
Please read this letter to the editor which tells how Mia Love has reached out to the deaf and hard of hearing.
