I have to admit that I was never a Bachelor/Bachelorette fan until this season #23. This season has completely flipped me into Bachelor/Bachelorette fan! It was mainly because of Cassie, one of the 30 women in the show who was the finalist and picked by Colton. (Psst. yes, they are now one of the hottest Hollywood items who are in the spotlight now.)

Anyhoo, on one of the Bachelor video teasers, I saw Cassie teaching Colton some basic sign language signs, that caught my eyes and I ended up watching the entire show. I was a fan of Cassie and had hoped she would win Colton's heart, and she did! This show not only showed how Cassie taught Colton some basic American Sign Language (ASL) signs, but it also showed how true love conquered all. Colton jumped over 8-foot fence and walked away from the show when he was devastated to find out Cassie was not sure about her feeling towards him and could not move forward to the engagement stage. As a result, Colton walked out from the show, and the show had to agree that he could change the show rules, so he could send two other girls home and pursue Cassie to win her heart. And he did! The whole show completely won my heart, and I am team Colton and Cassie forever! Sappy, I know, ha!
The whole point of this blog is that I am always delighted when I see someone go out to learn sign language and share the pride of knowing sign language with someone else. I am a strong believer that ASL is a beautiful language that should be embraced and valued in every community out there. I do understand that not everyone who learns ASL needs to be an expert or fluent in sign language, but taking the effort to learn some signs enlightens me. To me, this is one example as a beautiful human soul that would go out to learn more about ASL and its culture. Cassie is one of the beautiful examples of that. I am profoundly Deaf myself and use ASL as my primary language to communicate. I would not be who I am if it was not for ASL to provide access to communicate fully without any barriers. I value ASL so much and love seeing other hearing individuals use their valuable time to learn ASL. So, with that being said, to all the hearing readers out there, thank you for learning ASL and spreading the love of ASL with others. Let's continue spreading awareness of ASL and embracing it. ASL is beautiful and is forever cherished to me and our community. To my hearing audience, thank you for being part of the ASL tribe.
Thank you, Colton & Cassie, for getting me to have my wine night every Monday night. You both rock!
