It’s not every day that you get to experience the life of someone else and the challenges or happiness that they face. The deaf community are inviting you to join them and walk a mile in their shoes as they commemorate the International Week of the Deaf. The Silent Walk is a great way to educate everyone about the challenges that the deaf community face daily, and an opportunity for you to be more thoughtful about their daily silence. Definitely a good way to show support!
