The Preservation of Sign Language. George W. Veditz.shares a few words about the importance of preserving Sign Language. George mentioned that deaf people must be hard-hearted to those teachers who think they know everything but they do not understand what the mind, spirit, desire, and needs of a deaf person are. Deaf people from France, Germany, England, and Italy looks to us deaf Americans to help free their chains in mind, body, spirit, and ability to use sign language in their schools. Like the false prophet, Alexander G. Bell, says that oral method is better in educating the deaf but deaf people in other countries knows better of the importance in sign language within schools.
