Happy Deaf History Month to all.
National Deaf History Month is celebrated from March 13 through April 15 to commemorate the achievements of people who are deaf and hard of hearing.
Hellen Keller & Thomas Edison were one of the most inspirational deaf people who although having hearing issues showed that nothing could come in their way if your heart is brave and filled with sheer determination.
HELLEN KELLER ~
Blind-deaf American educator Helen Keller was a prominent socio-political activist.
She was the first deaf-blind person to earn a BA degree, and became a world-famous speaker and author, disability-rights activist and a campaigner for women’s rights and social equality.
Helen Keller single-handedly changed the lives of many disabled people through her empathy and activism.
THOMAS EDISON ~
Thomas Edison was quite possibly the greatest inventor of all time. Many of his inventions have improved the quality of our modern day lives.
During his career Edison’s inventions included the incandescent light bulb, the phonograph, and the motion picture camera.
Thomas Edison was completely deaf in one ear and hard of hearing in the other. He believed that his deafness was a benefit to his work, as it would help keep conversations short so that he could have more time for work!
There are many more such people like them who are hard working but unable to succeed due to their problems :(
On April 15, 1817, America’s first public school for the deaf was opened. On April 8, 1864, Gallaudet University — the world’s first institution dedicated to advanced education for the deaf and hard of hearing — was officially founded. And more than 100 years later, on March 13, 1988, Gallaudet hired its first deaf president in response to its students’ Deaf President Now movement.
