They say you never appreciate something until it gone, and you hearing is one of those things so precious you need to practice saving it. Losing your hearing can be caused by health issues, it could be genetic or caused by environmental issues. Having been a musician, I know when we played at high volumes we not only damaged our own hearing, but the hearing of those listening to us. And those people that play their music so loudly in a car that you can hear it a block away even though their windows are closed are truly hurting themselves. They may enjoy their music better now but later, they may not be able to hear it at all. Protect your hearing because there is nothing that replaces someone saying they love you and your not being able to hear it.
How to celebrate – Protect your hearing. Learn to enjoy silence. Say Happy Birthday to my son!!!
