Everybody looks confused. Hezeki: “I don’t know.”
Javon: “Do I know you?”
Trey, puzzled: “There’s snow… I’m not in Texas.”
Aliza: “I don’t know!”
Hazim: “I don’t know who you are. Why is everyone here?”
Tiffany: “Why are we here?”

They arrive to the door. Caprani: “Should I go ahead and open?”
Everybody: “Yes, go ahead!” Everybody enters the building.
Lily and Trey points at someone. Trey comes up to a tall man, Linsay Darnall Jr. Linsay Jr. smiles and looks at Trey. Trey steps back and says: “Why are here?”
Linsay Jr. nods. “Why are you here? People from across the U.S. are here for the Jr. NAD National Conference. This conference is all all about learning, studying, and building leadership. After this conference, we will go back to our homes and continue building deaf America. Together, we can succeed. We will teach you to become leaders.” Linsay Jr. smiles and walks away. All students stare at him.
