Y! Live Explained!

Thanks to Tayler for discovering Y! Live and sharing it with the DeafRead community. Over 100 of us scrambled into his Channel (room) last night and had a great time. Using it for our first time, there are many comments and suggestions made by our dear readers that Jay Krieger thought he could explain, so Jay self-volunteered and explained some things in this vLog.

Laurent Clerc: Powerful Statement

Jay Krieger found another quite powerful statement that goes well with George Veditz' famous and powerful statement. Jay attempts to "ASL-ize" Clerc's powerful statement which was quite a challenge. Full text of Clerc's statement is shown below. Feel free to share your versions.

Jay came across this statement which was hung in a picture frame in his school's superintendent office. There was no further information on when he wrote this, nor where he did this. Maybe, you, my dear DeafReaders, can search for and find more information.

Full Text:

A day when deaf people and their language are completely accepted -- no, more than that, truly welcomed -- as a part of the family of man, in which god created diversity not to oppress the minority who are different, but to enrich the lives of all.

-- Laurent Clerc
