    WOW! you all did a wonderful job on edited videotapes to help us to remember how strong the United for Gallaudet leaders and the Deaf community from all over the world have shown for us and Gallaudet University. What about all Deaf school?

    Adele and Patrick,

    I think you captured the ENERGY I felt during this whole crazy and, yes, sometimes wonderful time.

    I especially liked the part about how support for the protest grew once everybody looked around and realized that they weren’t alone in feeling the need to support one another in the growing cooperative effort.

    Instant global communication coupled with that profound hunger of all d/Deaf to understand… We’ve seen here the birth of a powerful tool to turn d/Deaf Imagination into d/Deaf Reality.

    2006–What a year! Felt like laugh and cry at the same time for all that was ever touched by Gallaudet!

    Good job u guys. George Vedltz’s ending was inspiring. How can I see more of him? Very interesting to see old age signing! We’ve come a long way since then!

    Excellent ASL presentation! Gallaudet belongs to Deaf Community and vice versa. Every year I vote a hearing person to be on Community College Board of Trustee. A nail hit my head that we (the deaf community) should be the ones to vote the selection of Gallaudet Board of Trustees.

    Adele Ann,

    Love your response in ASL. Hope we do more of these in the future!

    MikeS,

    You can see more of Veditz from THE PRESERVATION OF SIGN LANGUAGE videotape (don’t get the DVD version!!! Everything’s cut too short) by SMI. You’ll also see many others- from the early 1900s!

    What’s a beautiful editing! You captured all the important moments and it brought back the memories of the protest. The closing gave me the goose-bumps.

    If anybody asks about the protest, I’d send them the URL to this video.
