Thank you for joining me... I'm so glad you've popped in to read more about my goal for this year!!
After reading the incredible stories and looking at powerful images of various women fighting for the things they're passionate about, it made me start thinking about the things that I'm passionate about.... the things I want to change.
Apart from environmental issues, the thing that frustrates and absolutely astounds me, considering the technology we have available to us, is that Cinemas don't provide subtitles for people with hearing loss.
Yes, some cinemas have a hearing loop available for people to link their hearing aids with to hear a little clearer, but for a lot of people (like me!) this isn't the solution. I have to wait until a movie comes out on DVD so I can put the subtitles on to understand everything that is going on.. and to me, that's just not good enough!
Everyone should be able to access the cinema and hear what is going on.. and my way of hearing is with subtitles! Cinemas could easily do this.. the technology is there..! But why don't they??
My goal this year is to bring about awareness to change this. I want to change this so everybody with a hearing loss can go to the movies and immerse themselves in what is going on.
So... watch this space!! I'm going to do it!!
What things ignite a fire in your belly..? What is it that you want to change in the world? I would love to hear your thoughts.
As Ghandi said "Be the change you want to see in the world.'
