"I have a dream..."
You know, I'll never forget how I learned about SignWriting.
It was through a friend of mine, Kathy
Say. She mentioned SignWriting. And at first I was mystified,
naturally, never having heard about it before.
She told me that it was a writing system that can be used to
document signed languages. This piqued my interest. So, I went
to the DAC meeting - The Deaf Action Committee meeting that she
invited me to attend. And right there, at that meeting I learned
so much, wow!
I could see the many benefits of SignWriting. For example, it
could be used in the Educational setting, or used to preserve
signed language, or quite possibly be used to write ASL to one
another, eventually becoming the written language for ASL. Clearly,
there are many benefits to writing our language.
Using "Stacked SignWriting" seemed more natural to
me and easier to read and write in comparison to the English
order of writing from left to right. Really, the Stacked style
is easier to read and write - And I'm sure that once you use
it, you too will agree!
