The graceful flow of hands, the moods of body, the flickering of fingers; all suggest a variety of definitions. I believe most of my hearing colleagues would agree with me that we all started to love the deaf by loving their language first.” <- an inspiring quote/experience to end the love month. Cheers!

Happy Resurrection Day to all my blog followers! As my special Easter greeting to you, please watch this praise song “Mighty to Save” performed by Inigo Pascual, a popular RnB singer from the Philippines. This is special to me because of One Music PH, a music portal owned and operated by ABS-CBN Network’s Star Creatives Group. They requested our school for the deaf (MCCID) to partner with them because they want to add a sign language interpretation of the song. We gladly accepted and happily translated the song into Filipino Sign Language.
