      Houston, TX

Because children with hearing impairments need someone to look up to. We have a blind superhero such as Daredevil, and others who have missing limbs, but none with hearing problems. The story of the comic and the little boy who refused to wear his much needed hearing aid because Super Heroes didn't.  This comic was created for him and the story is below. Please read to understand our plight.

      I think with your creation of BLUE EAR, you have inspired and motivated one group of children! Why not give the same inspiration to hearing impaired everywhere?!
