Whereas more than fifteen million Americans of all ages experience
  some form of hearing impairment;
Whereas the deaf and hard of hearing have made significant contri-
  butions to society in virtually every occupational category and
  profession; and
Whereas the remaining impediments and obstacles encountered by
  those with hearing disorders must be recognized and eliminated:
  Now, therefore, be it
  Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United
States of America in Congress assembled, That the week beginning
April 8, 1984, is designated "National Hearing Impaired Awareness
Week". The President is requested to issue a proclamation calling
upon the people of the United States to observe such week with
appropriate activities.
