Woke up from my happy daze after watching last night’s Celebrity Apprentice. It felt GREAT knowing that Marlee Matlin did kick BUTT!
The old saying, “Deaf people can do anything but hear”, bleah. Discard this.
The new saying, “Deaf people can kick butt when it comes to raising money!” – Dedicated to Marlee Matlin!
A recent tweet sent by Star Jones, from Team A.S.A.P. regarding Marlee Matlin,
My girl @MarleeMatlin is so thorough..you forget she is deaf! Great example of how limitations are what OTHERS place on you.
Basically, we ALL have our differences, and it was the society who limits us, which makes us disabled.
The more exposure Marlee have, the people start to understand that she is no longer the ‘deaf’ actress. She is an actress who is very clever, classy and competent!
Let this be the lesson for :
Human Resources Specialists,
Parents of newborn Deaf babies,
and everyone else.
Thank you, Star Jones for your tweet.
