There are so many things that we take for granted. Like all the senses. It’s probably impossible to truly imagine what it’s like not to be able to see, hear, touch, smell, or taste.
In which case it’s definitely impossible to truly imagine what it must be like to gain one of those sense after decades of living without it. But that is exactly what happens in this video.
We get to see, to share in, the moment in a 29-year-old woman who has been deaf since birth hears herself and those around her for the first time ever. And it’s a truly joyous moment that even the most hard-hearted person would struggle not to appreciate.
This is happiness of the highest order. The woman cannot contain her joy at experiencing sound for the first time. And it’s all thanks to technology in the form of a hearing implant. I could watch this over and over.
