“He had the earphones on trying ignore the chaos and beside him sat someone with hearing aids plugged enjoying that chaos…”
There is a voice in our heads that is reading this right now and probably that voice will always be there to support us. I wonder what it feels like for those who haven’t spoken or heard their own voice, who don’t have the amazing ability hear like I do. Is that voice still there with them hidden somewhere or is it eerily silent?
How do they think or read? It is just a really curious thing.
Dedicated to those who are special and to those who love to listen to the chaos. 👍

According to WHO, “over 5% of the world’s population (360 million people) has disabling hearing loss (328 million adults and 32 million children). Disabling hearing loss refers to hearing loss greater than 40 decibels (dB) in the better hearing ear in adults and a hearing loss greater than 30 dB in the better hearing ear in children. The majority of people with disabling hearing loss live in low- and middle-income countries. And 1.1 billion young people (aged between 12–35 years) are at risk of hearing loss due to exposure to noise in recreational settings.” For more http://www.who.int/mediacentre/factsheets/fs300/en/ | This is not an endorsement or advertisement.
