“IndepenDeaf”January 4, 2016
“IndepenDeaf” is my working title for a docu that is currently occupying my time, as New Year kicked off – with the hope that I finish it soonest – latest next month.

All must learn from it, Deaf included. “Education for All!” I adhere to that for their inclusion. I have actually started encoding the content. But had to stop for the moment. First things first.
