Hopefully you are having a wonderfully day with a delicious holiday feast, Macy’s Parade Balloons, Turkey and loads of football! But more than that, Thanksgiving is a time, as Natalie Cole sang in 1977, to “be thankful of what you got.” To kick of the thank-you-offering-ceremony, I want to thank every one of you for reading bf4life-hearing. :)
Everybody knows the Thanksgiving story: In 1620, a group of English Puritans (a.k.a. the Pilgrims) sailed on the Mayflower to the new world to flee religious persecution. There, they founded the colony of Plymouth, Massachusetts. But, life in the New World was not easy: there was famine, cold winters and Indian attacks. Yet, some Indians shows the Pilgrims how to survive in Massachusetts, introducing them to new crops like Maize. In return, the Pilgrims hosted a Thanksgiving feast to thank the Indians for their help. But, do you know the story of the Pilgrims who were deaf/hard of hearing?
