Your enthusiasm is contagious! I agree that these 3 individuals are a gift for those who will open and receive what they have to offer.

Hi B.A.D.,

First of all, it is good to see you back to vlogging!

Do you mean that the concept of
Deafhood had been vague to you
until you went to Rochester?
I want you to explain WHY you are
immersed in Deafhood.

Had I known about Rochester in
advance, I would, by all means,
have flown to Rochester. Train go,
sorry, so to speak.

Do not disappear from vlogging
again. :-D

WOW! Thank you for sharing your beautiful enthusiasm! I just sent Ella an email this evening about our home state or if we can drive to the nearest state for the deafhood conference. I wouldn't want to miss it at all!

Thank you again, B.A.D. :)

What goosebumps you gave to me - your message is very important and powerful. We need to appreciate Ella, DE, and GG more for their time in spreading what Deafhood is all about.

Upward we go!!

Deaf Woman said...

WOW!! I DEFINITELY want to go so very much, I truly hope we will have one in NJ, nyc or Philly soon! I desire to hear, with my heart, all about it and can't wait to attend one soon! You sure looked like you've been wowed by your experience, learning so much from Ella, DE and GG! I've been wanting to go so much! You're
lucky you went!!
Maybe someday, there will be an annual of National Deafhood Convention?! Wouldn't that be great?!Thanks for vlogging about this!! Can't wait to hear more about it and attending one soon!! Hugs!! :-)

Hi Jean :-)

(Yes its gooood to be back!!) Thanks for your encouragment!! :-)

You asked:

Deafhood had been vague to you
until you went to Rochester?
I want you to explain WHY you are
immersed in Deafhood.

I went to DeafHood last year (Rhode Island), and again this year Rochester, because it inspires me, for MYself, for WHO I am, it brings out more in me, the strength in Deaf community, and most of all woke ME up, from years of not knowing what the "system" (other people ie; Hearing, doctors, audoiologists)of what they were doing or saying abou the "Deaf" and me believing "their" system, which DeafHood, woke me up - and I tell you Jean, the workshop showed the Truth. I really hope you do go, and let me know how you felt.

:-)
