I was watching a show last light (at like 2am) that was all about deaf people and their families. A whole segment of it was basically talking to the parents about why they would not let their deaf child to get an implant that would allow her to hear! They said that it was wrong to do and that being deaf was something she should appreciate. If I was deaf, and my parents had the chance to let me hear, and they decided that not hearing was best for me, I would hate them for all time. Being able to hear is one of our body's greatest senses. I dont think I could stand not being able to hear. What if the kid was blind and they had the chance to let her see, but didnt because 'they thought it was best' that she shouldnt see the world! WTF is wrong with these people?!?!?
