I have a son who was born deaf and let me tell you he is so smart intelligent and has a heart of gold he is 27yrs old and is married and has a baby girl who was born hearing which that didn’t matter to us we call her our triple threat she’s going to speak English and Spanish and will doing sign language to communicate with her parents. I saw this video and it’s amazing. This is truly special! Kudos to this firefighter for making a kids day! My son is 4 and deaf so this story has a special place in my heart! My 6-year-old wrote a letter on how hands are the most important part of her body so she can sign with her little brother. Several years ago, in one of the No hun you’re thinner than me not prettier shirt, I taught in sign language in Maryland, one of my students was a firefighter. One day, about half-way through the series, he came into the class so excited. The day before, there was a fire in a big office building, and everyone was evacuated. He went through the building to make sure everyone was out. In one office there was a woman still sitting at her desk, working away, totally unaware there was anything wrong. She was deaf, and of course, didn’t hear the announcement to leave. He was able to sign to her to leave. She thanked him and left. He was so excited! He said it was such a fantastic feeling, to actually use the sign language, not only to actually communicate but to help someone!

This is from my City!!!! Manchester, NH. Our firefighter had parents who were deaf & from what I’ve heard this boy & mother were elated he knew sign language & spoke to Teegan. One of my roommates in College is deaf, her then boyfriend and now husband learned to sign so he could sign in secret so he could sign his wedding vows, it was one of the most beautiful things I’ve seen done for love. Fireman Mike is truly a golden person! I think the basic alphabet should be taught in schools – it’s easy n can help in many times needed!

I have 15-year-old year 10 he at deaf school used sign language and oral for children and I am also deaf mum and my dad deaf and my sister deaf and her 2 kids deaf we all happy and friendly. being born almost deaf, I have had a hard time understanding people let alone most didn’t understand my not being able to understand some words spoken. I got made fun of a lot through life, especially from my brothers growing up…but it’s so sweet when I see these things, thank you for making that young mans day firefighter Mike. So I had a friend in high school who is deaf. He has hearing aids to help him be in regular school instead of a strictly deaf school. Well, one day he was running late and left his devices at home, by the No hun you’re thinner than me not prettier shirt of the day he came up to me and said: “I haven’t been able to hear a single person but you today.” And we both laughed and I said: “oh so you’re saying I’m loud huh?!” And he goes “no no it’s your voice, it’s loud yes, but not like other people. You have a different tone/pitch.” And I said “oh. Okay then, well thanks? I guess? Let me know if you need my help?” And they we made bad sign language jokes with what little signing I know / can do.
