Blaring TVs (Continued)
Despite his disability, he plays the organ at church; he has always held a good job and provides well for his family. Most importantly, he has been a loving father and husband. Unfortunately, my father’s hearing has grown progressively worse. I will have to accept the fact that one day it will get so bad he won’t be able to hear my voice or everyday sounds - the laughter of children, or the ringing of church bells that bring sweet music into our lives.
Someday, the only way my dad will be able to communicate is through sign language, which I hope to teach him soon. I guess I better enjoy talking to him as much I can now, so he will remember the sound of my voice.
My dad is the major reason I want to study speech pathology and audiology.
