There were no deaf children where I grew up, no deaf children where I went to school.
There was no hearing impairment I can remember in my family, no deaf personnel serving in the military where I was assigned.
So it's no surprise that I was also unaware that March 12 to April 15 is Deaf History Month. It celebrates the history of deaf people and important dates in the development of the deaf community in America. It calls to mind my own experiences with deaf people, who have given me an appreciation for hearing impaired Americans.
