I have a schoolmate in college who is mute, but can do sign language and can see. Our school accept students who has disabilities like,blind, or can't even walk, which is good. I feel sad about these people, and why these should happen to them. Having disabilities is horrible, but on the positive sides, they have more talent that is been used wisely than people who are normal. I think for the two choices you have give, which horrible; being deaf or blind. These two are really not good disabilities of a person whereas, being blind you cannot see anything, it's completely dark. You won't see what the worlds is and how beautiful the surrounding is. Where is, being deaf is also not being good, but, I hope can see what surroundings is but cannot hear anything. There is advantages and disadvantages between the two. The advantage of being blind is you cannot see how ugly the world is in terms of crime but you can hear noises. The advantage of being deaf is you cannot hear anything but you can see.But, I am sure they understand what they see and they hear but, unlike us it is way different.
