The first deaf MEP - Dr. Ádám Kósa - addressed the European Parliament today

Dear readers,

I am honestly moved seeing the first deaf Member of the European Parliament, Dr. Ádám Kósa speaking in the plenary today.

I cannot even recall having seen this in a national context - and even if so, it is amazing to see that this is possible in the European Parliament with its already 23 official languages:

I congratulate Dr. Kósa, and hope he gets the support he needs to be a good MEP!
