A Evening At BDA

Like One Big Happy Family

This scene up at Bohol Deaf Academy one evening last week was not staged for the camera.  Dennis Drake just dropped in and found the deaf kids sitting around on the stage and at a couple of tables doing random projects and chatting.  The atmosphere was so very peaceful and so family like that Dennis reported that, ” it kind of took his breath away”.  There were no computers screens flickering, Game Boys or IPods in hand, no TV reality shows droning on but instead peaceful creativity.  There were no adults watching over them to make sure they were doing home work and the kids were really enjoying themselves.  So refreshing.
