In an industry centered around the spoken word, much of what voice talent and marketers to is communicate a message so that it can be heard and then acted upon by the target audience.
That being said, many of us are tuned out to the fact that there are people in our midst who cannot hear.
Join me in today's VOX Daily and watch some miracles take place that will give you a greater appreciation for the gift of hearing.
This 8 month old baby, Jonathan, was born deaf. Watch the moment as his cochlear implant is activated and he hears sound for the first time, and his mother's voice. I've included a couple more videos in this post that are similar.
Watching people restored in some capacity is an amazing thing. If you cried or were moved, you are not alone.
There are many, many more videos of this kind on YouTube. Some of the videos I found of adults hearing for the first time or regaining their hearing were very long and give you a different window into what being able to hear means.
How does watching videos like these make you feel? Be sure to share your thoughts by leaving a comment.
