Leah Katz-Hernandez: Hi!! Guess where we are right now??? Take a look around... Ahhh, we're at CNN's Grill! We're actually right in the CNN Building! Wow... how did we get here? You remember yesterday's interview with a Deaf CNN worker Joel Garcia? He talked with his superior and explained about the Deaf Campaign 2008's blog, about how it's deaf-centered, has posts in sign-language, and is all about the unique deaf perspective. He explained all that and his superior was interested enough to become curious to meet with me. That culminated with me getting a VIP pass -- see this -- and I came into here tonight after Clinton's speech. I met with Joel's boss and we had a nice brief chat, exchanged information. Now, I must say I am truly impressed -- CNN has showed interest in me!! Is it guaranteed that I will be filmed by CNN? No, there is no promise of that. But the most important thing to consider is the fact that I have CNN's attention now! Does that mean that I'm important? No, no, that means that CNN's attention is on YOU, the deaf community! That is truly incredible and important. It's exciting -- but not for me, for YOU!! Keep on watching and see what happens... Thank you.
