First ASL class

Last night was my first ever ASL (American Sign Language) class. Well, it was my second, but the first one was just introductions and stuff… yesterday the learning began.

We did some fingerspelling exercises and started practicing on asking people their name and telling them ours. Also got a little vocabulary. I am excited and cannot wait to start learning more. Got to see Dave one of my friends last night and tought him what I had learned and he picked up right away. He is going to try to practice with me, so it seems like I will have a lot of help.

Extremely excited about it.

September 11

We must never forget! that is pretty much how I feel. Beyond politics and anything else we must never forget.

Well this is my first year blogging so I think I will recount where I was that day and how I found out.

I was just starting to work like a normal morning at work. Getting done reading my e-mail my cube neighbor Johnathan came up and said this. A plane just crashed into one of the WTC towers in New York. I said no way. At this moment I am thinking just a plane crash.

We had a pretty nice lunchroom at the company that I was working at, we had 2 big TV’s on either end. I went over to watch the news and what was happening when all of a sudden I see the second plane hit. I immediatly knew this was not just an accident.

The rest of the morning I spend going back from the TV to trying to start working again with little luck. I got to see the towers collapsing and that was even more debastating to me. All of those lifes lost.

September 11 did not change me, but brought back memories I thought were of my past. Growing up in Colombia it was something normal to hear of bombs sploding or assasinations. They used to make me feel very vulnerable. I thought that living in the US, that was a thing of the past. September 11 broght that fear back in my life, that sense of vulnerability. That’s why we must never forget.
