Deaf can hear and understand

I read this quote through an email from one of Tom's classmates, Jodi, so I thought I'd post it along with the picture I really liked.

Kindness is the language the dumb can speak and the deaf can hear and understand.

Hi DebAnn-- I LOVE that picture.
:-) The quote. I like the meaning of it, but how do you feel about the word "dumb" I know it used to be used in place "mute" but neither is OK anymore. Still I like the meaning-- that everyone understands kindness. Another quote I have heard that is similar-- I don't know who said it. "We all laugh and cry in the same language." :-)

I am in the hospital again. I hope you're having a good weekend.

Oh, you're in the hosptial again and are you serious? Hope you're getting a quick and complete recovery!

Yes, I agree with you that I LOVE the picture too. I saved it for awhile until I found the right quote to go along with it. I was trying to think of a poetry to write, but I found this quote.

Thanks so much for sharing the other quote: "We all laugh and cry in the same language." I really liked it!
