"Hearing the leaky water faucet, the wind whistle, and a babbling brook may seem like normal background noise to those who have not experienced any hearing loss. Often one forgets that those high-frequency sounds ever existed. It is not a necessity, rather, it is a privilege to be able to hear." - Nicole Burgis
