Stephen stood just a few feet away from Barack Obama. The president, busy shaking hands, looked right at him. �It was like he was waiting for me to say something,� he said later.
So the 26-year-old Prince George�s Community College student took his cue and spoke to President Obama in his first language: American Sign Language. �I am proud of you,� Stephon signed. The president, almost involuntary, instinctively, immediately signed back.
