    Wow, they are just fabulous. Real heartwarming. I am so grateful that you’re willing to take time to share vlogs with people out there who did not see this Gala. Thank you!

    Thanks thanks thanks for the wonderful video. I so thoroughly enjoyed the video. You hit the nail on the head beautifully when you said, “We know two languages.” Beautiful! Truthful!
    Deaf Americans know two languages while most hearing Americans know only one language! Please continue making videoblogs.

    Best to you and your sister, Anne-Marie!

    Joey, another beautiful wrap up of a special event! Im impressed once again with how you presented info in great ways and yet continually challenge yourself (and us) to do more and do a better job. I was at the Gala and appreciate this great reminder of how inspiring it was like everybody said on your video. Of course it wasnt perfect, but the positive aspects exceeded any perceived faults. Thank you committee too for pouring out your time and energy at such a crazy time (holidays and finals) to bring the Gala to fruition. I sure hope other Deaf locations will do the same!
