Yes, this is one of the illustrations.
By the way, Judy says there are 800 members in the Deaf Association in
Managua, so there must be well over 1,000 ISN signers now. I guess our
efforts account for about 100 of them.
When an authoritative text credits our school in Bluefields with an
enrollment of 800 students, and describes it as the "national school", those
kind of errors sometimes come back to haunt us. We are exceedingly proud of
our programs for what they are, and would not like to be accused of
exaggeration (fraud) -- which can be the result of such mistakes.
But, fear not -- I am not losing any sleep over it.
