This is pretty amazing!! I had no idea that it is all over the world!  I first learn
about the sign writing through the Deaf artist and then through Master ASL.   
I am a Deaf ASL Teacher at high school full time for a long time...  

When I look/read the sign writing first time, I understand right away.  I was
real surprised at how much I understood sign writing since ASL is part of me
for who I am.    I thought that it would be too hard for me but it is not!!!  I
was shocked and happy at the same time that I finally fit in that "sign writing"

I showed it to my students and they seemed really fascinating and real
surprised that ASL is actually a language.  It seems like "notarized" seal it for
real...   I see their face "drop to the floor"    Now they know that ASL is for
real and it is equal to any written language.  Just unique.
