A heart-warming story of a neighbourhood embracing a 2 year old girl.

Hearing impairment can often serve as a social barrier for those who don’t know how to speak sign language – but in this little Massachusetts town, sign language has actually brought the community together.
2-year-old Samantha Savitz is deaf, but that doesn’t stop her from being an outgoing little toddler. Whenever Samantha is out with her parents in their town of Newton, she tries to chat up everyone she meets.
As the youngster got older, she continuously tried to befriend her neighbours – and they were all heartbroken when they were unable to respond because they did not know sign language.
Rather than giving up, the entire community started attending sign language classes so they could communicate with Samantha.
I love this story! I imagine that she incarnated within this community to be a catalyst for this loving act. This is a pure example of a whole community expressing their Oneness. It is beautiful to see!
