Deafness, the hidden disability

Not to hear those squarking seagulls, the baby crying, the loud music and people arguing -”sounds” good? Not really, as being Deaf or experiencing hearing loss removes you from the full engagement in everyday life.
What you lose is people–conversation, banter, gossip and information. 
American author Helen Keller, the first deafblind person to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree, struck a familiar chord for many when she said “Deafness, means the loss of the most vital stimulus – the sound of the voice – that brings language, sets thought’s astir, and keeps us in the intellectual company of man”.
