Unless we care more for the last letter than the height of the first…
“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”
~ The Lorax
ahh the drama over the height of a D
and Ds upon thars or not
havent we done done this dysfunctional dance before?
hmmmm wonder why its cropped up again folks
and consider the source and why bother – they have no power, influence, credibility or truths
its OK to be Deaf (dont matter if u r profoundly or partially or a wee bit) it is dandy and handy
The oppression and denial that often comes with it is less than desirable though, folks and this is why we STAND against the systems that promote audism
so give me a big D if u pls – i got a tweet up
It’s good to be D folks.
So we need not be squabbling over the height of one letter, eh?
It is futile and fruitless when the last letter is really the issue
is it to be F or D?
DeaF or DeaD
DeaF as in alive, awake, aware, and ACTIVE or Dead as in no more and/or a Death of the Spirit (see MLK, Jr speech)
That is the question, my friends and what you do and
what you fail to do will determine the answer.
Some folks got being DEAF in the cross-hairs marked for eradicate, mate. Whatcha gonna do do?
“and all that the Lorax left here in this mess was a small pile of rocks with one word
UNLESS” ~ The Once-ler
Quotes from Dr. Suess’ “The Lorax”
and this is a VERY old vlog entry (July 2010) that spoke to a similar theme – What’s It Gonna Be Deaf or Dead
PS: SIGNMARK rocked the house at RSD last night. Filled me with joy and awe. and AW, all the wee things up on stage grooving with him and even a tiny little red head took center stage and by the end of the evening everyBODY (Deaf and Hearing alike) was on their feet moving and grooving – even the oldest Board members. ahhh to be INDEPENDENT.
