An ASL Cover for “FIGHT SONG”


This is me, doing an ASL Cover for the Rachel Platten song “Fight Song”. It is soley for mostly my entertainment and yours. I am now H.I. and I used to be an Interpreter for the Deaf at a Major University and Hospital; also  in school systems. I claim no copyright to the song, singer, lyrics etc. Only to the sign Language.  I chose this song for “November, CRPS Awareness Month 2015” because of the meaning, the emotions and the words; also the concepts and Signs. Thank you for watching and check out my ASLcovers at my You tube page:  ASLSuzyQ

The Oak Tree…A Poem.


The Oak Tree = Suzanne Stewart

**A friend of mine wrote this to me and sent it from England..s.he said it reminded her of me. that made me feel really good b/c it really does seem as though it is truly about ME!!! thank you Sharon!

The Oak Tree
by Johnny Ray Ryder Jr

A mighty wind blew night and day

It stole the oak tree’s leaves away
Then snapped its boughs and pulled its bark
Until the oak was tired and stark

But still the oak tree held its ground
While other trees fell all around
The weary wind gave up and spoke.
How can you still be standing Oak?

The oak tree said, I know that you

Can break each branch of mine in two
Carry every leaf away
Shake my limbs, and make me sway

But I have roots stretched in the earth

Growing stronger since my birth
You’ll never touch them, for you see
They are the deepest part of me

Until today, I wasn’t sure

Of just how much I could endure
But now I’ve found, with thanks to you
I’m stronger than I ever knew
