Right next to you is a poem I wrote one day in Chicago. I think the poem speaks for itself when I wrote it. That day was a day of discovering myself when I realized technology can be amazing and damaging at the same time when you are in a relationship. I am not speaking as in a boyfriend/girlfriend way but with your parents, friends, or anyone you have a relationship with. Always remember that technology is always going to be here, the person right next to you won’t be. Enjoy.
Growing up in a town where there were not more than fifty Deaf people, it was hard to find a friend that was Deaf just like me. At six years old, I met someone who was just like me and it was something rare that I never expected to happen. His name was Adrian and this is my story.
