What is adversity?
It is not the same thing as overcoming oppression. It's about overcoming obstacles in life successfully. Here I produced a video blog about 3 years ago in the desert landscape of New Mexico to discuss adversity. My vlog was a message of support to the deaf and hard of hearing community, and parents of deaf or hard of hearing children. A message of choice, support, and respecting those who choose to communicate differently. A message about respect. Mocking those who choose to face adversity in a different way lack imagination. Reserve your judgement while you watch my 6 minute video. The video is subtitled. And there is no signing involved. I hope you enjoy my vlog.
