Deaf in a City of Music

Publisher: Goldminds Publishing

What happens to someone who can't hear the music in a City of Music? A city where Deaf means something is broken and needs to be fixed? Where the home of the great Johnny Cash has never heard of Beethoven's Nightmare? The Deaf children in the City of Music are screaming to be heard. The moral behind the Joe Paterno case has not yet been learned from that grim tale. This is not a gripe session, but an awakening to the abuse and neglect of thousands of Deaf American children. Americans who shop in our stores, sit in our classrooms, die in our hospitals, and waste away in our prisons. This is a call to arms. This is a story of too many Deaf children in America.
