Sarah Campbell works at a local Starbucks coffee because she loves to connect and talk with other people. One day, a couple walked into the Starbucks. Sarah took their order, but when she asked the woman for her name, she was stunned by the woman’s reaction. Rather than say her name, the woman stared back at Sarah with a blank, confused expression on her face. Sarah was taken aback as she had never seen a customer do this before, but when she learned the truth, her life would never be the same again.
The woman’s boyfriend steps in and explains to Sarah that his girlfriend is deaf and cannot understand what Sarah is saying. It is rare for strangers to speak to her without any sign of judgment, so she was stunned. Sarah apologized and filled out the couple’s orders. However, when they left the shop, Sarah could not help but feel uneasy. She loved connecting and meeting people, and because she could not connect with the deaf woman, she felt awful. Just because a person has a disability does not mean that the person should feel disconnected from the rest of the world.
Sarah’s next move is absolutely inspiring, but it’s something that you need to see for yourself.
