That was a teacher's message to her students. (credit: rationalcomment)
It is a nice message, they remember Black Students, Muslim Students, LGBT Students, Female Students, Latino Students and Undocumented Students but they do not remember Deaf Students.
I came across a recent article that was published on vice.com which was written by a Deaf writer and professor Sara Novic. She talked about Trump's victory as president and the way it would affect the Deaf Community negatively, her article titled "why Deaf Community Fear President Trump". She was interviewed by DPAN reporter named Kriston Pumphrey. She explained in the video why she wrote the article. The DPAN reporter reached out to Sara to learn more about why she wrote this article. Here is the conversation that transpired between Sara and DPAN reporter:

Martin Luther King Jr. (1929-1968) was a Baptist minister and social activist who played a key role in the American civil rights movement from the mid-1950s until his assassination in 1968.
- King’s birth name was Michael, not Martin.
- King entered college at the age of 15.
- King received his doctorate in systematic theology.
- Martin Luther King, Jr. didn’t just become the leader of the civil right movement: He helped to start it.
- In his efforts to fight segregation and inequality, King traveled more than six million miles and spoke more than 2,500 times.
- King’s “I Have a Dream” speech was not his first at the Lincoln Memorial.
- King was jailed 29 times.
- King narrowly escaped an assassination attempt a decade before his death.
- King’s last public speech foretold his death.
- MLK is the only non-president with a national holiday in his honor: Since Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is a federal holiday, your kids likely have off from school. Think about volunteering together in MLK’s honor.

I have never seen anybody complaining that soldiers are racists or tribalistic. Whether they are being nice to you or not, you and I know that they are there to protect us and fight for our country. You would agree with this saying “without the brave efforts of all the soldiers, sailors, airmen, marines and their families, this nation, along with our allies around the world, would not stand so boldly, shine so brightly and live so freely” - Lane Evans. It is important we all support the brave men and women serving in the Nigerian Armed Forces or U.S Military or any other force in the world.
