In 1927, Max Ehrmann wrote a famous, inspirational poem called: Desiderata. Desiderata is Latin for "desired things." Ehrmann's prose poem is a beautiful declaration of what is essential to one's life and how to live peacefully.
In light of the heated discussions on DeafRead lately about "deficit thinking," with diverse groups of deaf people -- consciously or unconsciously -- pitting themselves against one another, I decided to make and post this video clip below using Ehrmann's poem. The point of this video is simply to show that I, for one, am choosing to focus my energies on developing personal integrity, adaptation, inclusion and compassion for others.
