passion project update

For our project we are getting pretty far with our project. We continued researching and studying sign languages. I learned how people who are deaf and mute feel about being deaf. I also have been studying the alphabet and other signs. Hopefully there is much more learning to come.

Passion project

We have definitely accomplished a lot of stuff for our project. We have over 10 slides. We have made our sign language names. We talked about being deaf and the deaf culture. Also ASL facts and how it got created. I think we have some far and its only the beginning

Empathy

I agree with Jeremy Rifkin when he says instead of obsessing over creating a more perfect union maybe its time to put equal weight on creating more empathic society. People should learn how to be less selfish and feel others pain. I think that is a really big issue in this world. People take everything for granted including me, but for some they are less fortunate than others, and people don't understand that. I don' think that it is possible to extend empathy to the entire race. I think that because there are so many people that empathy doesn't even come to their minds, how would it be possible to extend it. It great to imagine it but i don't think that it will ever be possible. There are so many different types of backgrounds that people come from, that's why there are so many differences
