Signing Sunday - President Obama

This is probably old news to most of you, but in case you missed it. Stephon, a deaf student, saw President Obama at a rally. When the president looked at him, Stephon signed in his language, ASL "I'm so proud of you" to which the President signed back "Thank you." This doesn't seem like a big deal, but it is. ASL has come a long way in the world, but it still isn't recognized by most people as a "real" language. For the President to instinctively respond the way he did is just awesome. Here's the video. I cry every time I see it, no idea why.

  1. That was so moving! Obama's amazing. Every YouTube video I see of him makes me like him even more, when for most politicians it's the opposite!

  2. That is a big deal. I hadn't heard this, but it makes me proud (again) that he's our president! Thanks for posting.
