Signing = Singing
My family and I were all sitting, tacos in hand, ready for the Super Bowl to begin. Within minutes, as H.E.R., sang America the Beautiful, we were drawn to the box in the upper corner where Warren “Wawa” Snipe was interpreting the song in ASL.
Suddenly we were reminded of – we were SEEING – the sentiments in the song, the meaning, the intentions. We got a little misty-eyed. We felt appreciative – excited – and patriotic.
Music – even if we can’t hear it – brings us together. It connects us through shared experiences and emotions.
In case you missed it … enjoy.
