There is a deaf girl sitting across from me in the library talking with her friend using sign language. It is one of the coolest things that I have ever seen. This mode of communication fascinates me and I wish that I could communicate that well using my body language. They have a gift brought by lack of hearing that I certainly wish I had. This is a great example of God's gifts. He gives and he takes away!
