"I endorse the hearing challenge pin, as a tool that will assist communication between the hearing challenged and the hearing community.  

I recognize the importance of having a national  Recognized Symbol for the Hearing Impaired - for safety, understanding and better communication. 

As part of the isolation that occurs with the hearing challenged, is their invisibility, this will enhance that visibility as well as make a general awareness to the public to assist communication."
