“Only cowards hide their silence”-Paul Coelho
The importance of AGBell Survivors, once admitted in our general society, becomes paramount in the study of oppression.
It takes great courage to stand up for ASL, because the moment we decide we want to do good in this community, forces to stop ASL chase us. At any cost! What is the image that comes to mind when we think critically about ASL? Someone who has a grasp of ASL, who can see the big picture. We must be brave in the face of criticism and opposition. We must follow our heart so we we’ll never get lost, and we will prevail. ASL is a form of speech.
There’s nothing wrong with an established mode of ‘language’ life, unless we allow this rut to drain the passion from our lives as the Deaf community. Personally and philosophically, I seek to involve myself in exclusive ASL that does speak to my soul every day.
Mishka Zena was silenced because of Moog letter for Deaf Education. Guess what? They did what they did was illegal. REALLY! Want to know why? Moog Center for Deaf Education is the product of AGBell Association for the Deaf. Alexander Graham Bell Association for the Deaf is registered under National Historic Landmark (NHL)-which means federal government through Congress—also is under Freedom Information Act (FOIA)—“The Freedom of Information Act” (FOIA) is a law that gives you the right to access information from the federal government. It is often described as the law that keeps citizens in the know about their government.” Citizens: Deaf people. Yes, they are qualified under United States Constitution.
Deaf people do have right to access to FOIA and post a letter whether if it is Moog Center letter or not because again, Moog Center is under AGBell Association. BUSTED!
The word “war” is derived from the Old English “ Wyrre,” which means, “to bring into confusion.” Peculiar things happen to the mind in “language war”, Deaf people are tired of being confused anymore! Language war: Language deprivation.
AGBell lies by putting “Amygdala”–one of the reasons: Fear. Amygdala is an almond-sized area in brain. You see, it was found in the same level to the eyes. Not only that, but it also controls emotions such as fear, scare, anger, hate, the laundry list of words. For example, when you are really frightened, you may become shocked temporarily due to amygdala turn its normal size greater. The size of amygdala when scared would be a grapefruit and imagine how big amygdala as a grapefruit in your brain.
For example, the day after Nyle DiMarco won the Mirror Ball, in a Washington Post about National Spelling Bee, a cochlear implant kid, were taught by AGBell’s lies quoted, “there were in shock”–that is a perfect example of Amygdala.
AGBell started the wrong war with AGBell survivors. Big mistake. Grins. It was bigger mistake to silence Mishka Zena in the first place. I was an AGBell survivor–go ahead and dare to silence me.
