This is important to me for many reasons. My younger sister Sara was born deaf in both ears. She has a cochlear implant but it is still hard for her to hear everything in the movie theaters. It breaks my heart when she is watching a movie and cannot understand what is going on. She get's very upset and frustrated when she doesn't understand the movie and then she feels guilt because she has to keep asking us questions during the movie. Not only for my sister but for the rest of the hearing impaired world, this is something that needs to be done. It is not fair to them and this shouldn't even be an issue. With today's technology and all of the money that the movie theaters bring in, this is the least they can do. This would make not only my sister happy but I know this movement can help the rest of the world with this issue. I will do everything I can to make sure that this product is in every single movie theater. We need devices in each Movie Theater that can either be hooked to the back of a chair or held in the person's hand that will relay the words from the movie to the device. Please pass this petition onto your friends, family, co-workers ANYONE!
