Patrick Believed He Would Never Converse. Watch Him Find Out He’s Wrong.

Patrick was born deaf. He's now 15 and has never learned sign language because his village in Uganda doesn't have a school for kids like him. Just like that, he's unable to have a conversation with anyone.Raymond is going to change that.

Patrick Believed He Would Never Converse. Watch Him Find Out He’s Wrong.

Deafness takes on a very different form in sub-Saharan Africa.

Many children become deaf early in life through a disease, like malaria.


Unlike the West, where many who are hard of hearing have access to resources and support, deafness can be disabling in remote places where sign language is not taught and support is hard to come by.

Meet Patrick (on the right). He is deaf and unable to speak.

Patrick is one of the lucky ones. A sign-language school was recently set up for individuals like him.

It made a world of a difference.

See the full video to catch the exact, heart-melting moment when Patrick regains hope.

Again, Patrick is one of the lucky ones. This is not a minor problem.

Issues like this can be hard to wrap your head around. Videos like this one can help us better move past the staggering statistics to understand what it's like to be one of the 360 million. And maybe more important, what a difference it makes to finally get support.

Andrew Garfield with Stephen Colbert.

Andrew Garfield came onto “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” to promote his new movie, “tick, tick… Boom.” What he gave instead was a truly touching story about love and loss, with a refreshing and relatable twist.

The sweet moment comes at the four-minute mark of the interview, where Colbert asked Garfield how playing Broadway composer Jonathan Larson (who died suddenly of a heart issue at the upswing of his creative career) helped him process the unexpected loss of his mother.

Instead of wishing the pain away, Garfield states, “I hope this grief stays with me.”

Jimmy Fallon #MyFamilyIsWeird.

It’s that time of year again, the holiday season is when we get the pleasure of spending way more time than we’re used to with our families. For those of us who’ve moved away from our immediate families, the holidays are a great time to reacquaint ourselves with old traditions and to realize that some of them may be a little strange.

Every family seems to have its own brand of weirdness. In fact, I wouldn’t trust anyone who says that their family is completely normal.

On November 18, “The Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon gave everyone a reason to celebrate their unique families by asking them to share their favorite stories under #MyFamilyIsWeird. The responses were everything from odd holiday traditions to family members that may have a screw (or two!) loose.

Here are 17 of the funniest responses.
