This post exemplifies what Deaf Pagan Crossroads is truly all about – a crossroads of diverse paths, cultures, backgrounds, beliefs, etc. meeting together to explore different worlds and learn about one another. Hopefully this can be just the beginning of taking those small steps in that bridge building process.
Deaf Pagan Crossroads would like to thank the editors of DeafRead for selecting this post as one of the finalists, and also extends its heartiest congratulations to all of the bloggers and vloggers who are finalists. We wish you all the very best, and thank you for sharing your messages with the world. Your thoughts are important to all of us as part of that whole process of creating bridges of knowledge, understanding, sensitivity, and acceptance.
Once again…congratulations Crystal, and the best of luck to you! Thank you for sharing your views, and helping us all to see things from a hearing person’s perspective.
In the end, we are all winners. This program served to help unite the Deaf Community, and to build bridges of understanding between the Deaf and Hearing Worlds. To that effect, we can all be thankful; we can all join together at the Crossroads and say…
IT’S GOOD TO BE DEAF.
