The American School for the Deaf Changes!

G'day Every one.

It was the scream heard across the deaf world this week.

While today was the Graduation day at Gallaudet University (congratulations, Seniors and graduates! Don't forget to do job hunting daily!!), it was the announcement coming out of American School for the Deaf (ASD) about it's historic Gallaudet Hall!

While it's a shocking and somber to hear this, but it's very understandable for this to happen due to the age of Gallaudet Hall. While I do agree the need to replace the historic institution on the ASD campus, it should come at a price where ASD must document every inch of the former Gallaudet Hall before ground is broken and the buiding razed.

In about a year's time, it should worth for every member of the deaf community to visit and donate to the ASD to help with the construction of the new building. ASD is an important institution for all of the deaf community. It should be very interesting to see how technology changes the way teachers teach the younger deaf generations for years to come.

At this time, let us thank the ASD for their decision and praise them for the task that is put before them, a new building! May ASD have a wonderful and BRIGHT future!
