  • Deaf because I all ready speak sign language (I have an aunt who is deaf) and I think it would be easier than losing my sight.

  • deaf. I could learn sign language. I want to be able to see so I can see my family, watch my fave shows, read, play on the internet, see nature snow fall, see the colors of autumn, and watch sunsets...etc. Watch fireworks on the 4th of fave holiday!

  • oh my lord thats a hard one lol.
    i think i would rather be deaf, because you can still do everything you would if you wasnt deaf.

  • that's hard but deaf i'd still want to see my kids and family...

  • As hard as this is to answer I say I'd rather be death. I could not go on with out being to see my children. I'd learn to read lips which I somewhat do now. I don;t think one is easier than the other but I sure can say it would be really hard for me to be blind
