Monday Gratitude Campaign

See Through Masks :) Smile Dr. Brian Travers, a former doctor who lost his hearing in 2002, started sewing the masks with clear panels after he struggled to communicate with people in masks. He relied on lip reading and masks meant he no longer understood people around him. Travers suspected that other deaf and hard of hearing people had similar experiences. “The mask is required. But it is a barrier,” Travers said. So he examined the masks he made since learning to sew in March. Soon, he designed a prototype with an opening covered by clear plastic. “How great is life when there are no barriers? A smile is the greatest way to introduce yourself,” he said. “All these times we may have taken for granted interacting with other people.”
