As the mother of a deaf girl, I was outraged when I read a blog entry by fellow-blogger Karen, who was refused service at a Steak and Shake drive through window, because she is deaf and can't use the speaker.
Even though Jazzie has a cochlear implant, there will be situations where she might not be able to do something that most people can, and my biggest fear is that she will get the same kind of response Karen got at Steak and Shake.
I am joining lots of other faithful readers of Karen's blog by spreading the word and standing up for her and others with a disability (deaf or otherwise). Karen deserves an apology.
Someone at Shake and Steak may have gotten it completely wrong, but Pepsi got it completely right in their new Super Bowl commercial: "Celebrate Diversity"...
(this commercial is silent; no need to adjust your speakers).
I was already a Pepsi drinker, but I am an even bigger fan now ;-)
