I've a couple of things to ask:
1.) Chris H. I noticed that you have copied and pasted text from this blog and left it (along with the url to Ethan's World) in the comments section of other blogs. I found it to be very disconcerting and confusing. While I suspect that you have no bad intentions, and that you probably agree with me philosophically about teaching ASL to my child with an implant, I must respectfully ask you not to take my words out of context and leave them on other web sites.
2.) Would you have a look at this clever and creative idea for raising money for a good cause? These teachers are donating all proceeds to their local food pantry and they live in an area where there are many hungry people, namely children. I love their approach and I especially love the message they are sending their high school students, that we all can find ways to help our fellow human beings.
