As I type this blog I am watching CNN news reporting from the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) about the terrorist threat that forced their schools to close today. Luckily students were not in session thus avoiding a massive evacuation across an entire city. But, what if students had been in the classrooms, including Deaf students who use sign language to communicate. Would we be able to evacuate all safely?
Knowing a few words in sign language can save lives.
So, I am asking on behalf of those who are Deaf or use sign as a preferred mode for communication if you would take a few moments to learn a few signs. For someday you may be a child or adults communication bridge to safety!
