Being hearing I am pretty much clueless when it comes to Deaf people, Deaf culture and the Deaf community. I do not understand the difficulties that some of them have to go through because I myself have never had to experience that. After watching the documentary Through Deaf Eyes, it really made me understand more what they have to go through. There are a few scenes from the movie that particular stand out to me which are the scene about the band Beethoven’s Nightmare, Cochlear Implants, and the protest at the Gallaudet University. Beethoven’s Nightmare is a three person deaf rock band.
Deaf culture is something that most people do not understand. When a hearing couple has a deaf child, they go through a grieving process because they think that their child is doomed to a life of isolation and being “disabled”. Whenever a hearing person passes a deaf person in the street, they sometimes experience a tinge of pity. These examples are simply because hearing people constantly focus on what deaf people cannot do, instead of focusing on what they can do. One way that someone can begin to respect the Deaf culture is by accepting the fact that deafness is not a disability, it is just a unique characteristic about the person.

My older brother and I were always very close with our grandfather as we were growing up. We would do everything together. He was the first person who introduced us how to ride a bike, how to play chess, how to play basketball. He even got me my very own basketball hoop in my backyard for my birthday, but unfortunately as time flew by life took all this from us.
They went into a great deal of detail as to how they were intricately designed by God to help people along the way. This seemed too much at the time for my six year old mind to be able to comprehend so I simply clutched my GI Joe action figure and endured the remainder of the ride home. Looking back on my life I see that most of what I deemed as foolishness coming from the mouth of my now deceased parents can now be viewed as pertinent information that was so profound and full of wisdom. As I matured I too found myself always in positions of wanting to help people. As a young man in his early 20’s, I felt that if I was able to be of some sort of assistance to my fellow-man I could not only fulfill my purpose but hopefully change the world, one person at a time.
It saddens me that society puts so much pressure on the Deaf to become hearing that the concept of Eyeth vs. Earth had to come about. Deaf people should be considered ‘the norm’ on earth as well. I also enjoyed watching the interviews of Deaf people and coming to know their perceptions of Deafness. Overall, I sensed much pride as each interviewee gave their personal story. The overall impression I got

There are many unanswered question in Myrna’s mind, and she couldn’t stay at her home anymore and be her mother so she leave with a note for Kenny that it means he should go away within a week.
