I just stumbled upon the video about the recent 20th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act with Deaf actress Marlee Matlin as one of the speakers. (To watch, forward the video to 12:51 minutes). Click the link below:

It is interesting to note that just like in the Philippines, the PWDs in America also suffer the same disregard from the non-PWD sector, i.e in employment, facilities, etc. But of course, according to some friends, they comparatively have better resources and are being offered better privileges and benefits.
