I get goose bumps sometimes when I hear language spoken. My heart beats fast and I feel really good, and sometimes I feel the tears falling from my eyes. It’s so rare these days to hear children speaking their language. When they do it’s joyful, it’s a joyful sound and I want to hear it more often. I want it to become natural again to hear language. I want to be able to take it for granted that, yes, someone’s speaking the language, instead of thinking, ‘Oh wow! Someone’s speaking the language’, because that’s where we are at the moment.
