"My mother grew up with sign language, she was powerful, took part in the world and our relationship was as deep as wide. My Father was in an oral school and he became timid, forlorn and we are always struggling to communicate. My daughter signs and speaks many languages. You deprive us of sign language, you deprive us of dignity."  -Oya Ataman
