Watching this film has made me realize that Deaf Culture has come a very long way. In 1800’s, Deaf people were very misunderstood and were often seen as strange or mentally retarded (ASL IVC).

It made me understand the sort of frustrating situations a deaf person encounters on a daily basis, how deaf culture has evolved in a positive manor and how deaf people are normal people like you and i. Furthermore, it made me appreciate my own life by admiring simple but yet smoothing sounds of life. American Sign Language is a very amusing and entertaining language. I plan to furthermore expand my knowledge in this particular topic and I also plan to become fluent in American Sign Language. I love signing and plan on becoming an amazing signer.
