DeafDigest editor never forgot a deaf teen party that took place so many years ago. A group of deaf kids sat down in one part of the room at the party. A group of hearing kids also sat down in the other part of the party room. Both groups did not mingle with each other. Suddenly a hearing kid walked over to the deaf group and gave a long talk. None of the deaf kids could understand him. Yet he would not stop talking for a long time. The party ended and the deaf kids still had no idea of what he was trying to say!
