As much as I have enjoyed this journey so far of open questioning, observation and analysis, it has been brought to my attention that my words have compromised the privacy and integrity of some of those around me. I am not only serving as an op ed columnist, I am also a representative of my department, my intended profession, and subject to following all of the privacy codes established to protect clients from exploitation. To those I have hurt and offended, I am truly sorry. Therefore, since I'm not sure how to continue producing an honest analysis of my experience as a hearing student at Gallaudet without breeching written and unwritten codes of professional and friendly conduct, I have decided to suspend my blogging activities until further notice. For those of you who have been reading along, thank you for your company.
