Hello all! This week has been insane from improving the site to being in contact with some great people all over the United States! Designing this website has been a blessing to me. I feel as if this could be my true calling. My passion for educating the world about the deaf community runs strong. I could never fully explain to others what the knowledge about the language and culture has brought me, but I will try to do my best to show you as my blog continues. My next step is to try to get more people involved in all of the elements of Deaf Insight. As you can see above, we have a forum which I hope will start to grow soon. The forum is to help those with knowledge help me teach others that are seeking to find out more about the language and culture. Once this site is completely established as I foresee it in the future, there should be something for you to learn at every turn you take in this site.
My question is what are some things you all would love to see on this site? What would you like to learn? I am here to help educate you! Each person that makes one click on this site is taking the first step towards learning. I hope for those people to tell the next person about something they learned.
There are so many people out there that have no clue which brings on fear of this community. People are afraid of what they don't know. Most people try to change that by learning more about the thing they are afraid of. Well, I challenge you all to educate at least two people this week about American Sign Language, deaf culture, and or deaf community. If you step up and educate more people, that is amazing and you should be very proud of yourself. We must expand the mind of our nation and beyond! Be proactive to teaching, learning, and making a difference!
Please come again next week when I will discuss the impact of deaf family members in a hearing family. Please leave a comment below. I would love to hear what you all think about the fear of the unknown between the deaf and hearing communities.

I created Deaf Insight to help spread deaf awareness. It is a place for everyone to come together to help share with the world! In this blog, I discuss my thoughts about many things. I hope you all enjoy it!
