  1. I'm crying cause this is so beautiful! Mrs. DiMarco (His mother) hit it right on. Old school did not want sign language. I went to a deaf school when I was young and they only taught us to read lips and told us we can't sign because it would hinder us. I can hear partially with the one ear I do have, but I have limited knowledge of sign language. I'm caught in between the hearing culture and the deaf culture. It's a very hard place to be in, especially as a musician. I can't wait to read his book. Thank you for sharing and loved that the interviewer is also using sign language,

  2. I am now learning ASL and will use it as my "co language" I do speak ,I am an adult who has lost considerable hearing so I will use both. There is a misconception that we are "different" because of our lack of hearing, I reply we are not different, we speak another language. So happy to see that hearing loss is finally being seen as a different use of a slightly different language, the grammar is different in ASL from spoken English. We are not disabled, we just speak in ASL.
