I stuttered as a child. When I was a child I would often open my mouth to speak but couldn't make ANY sound come out! I also had trouble with "r", "s" and "th" at the middle or the end of a word. I haven't completely outgrown it. It comes back once in a while in certain circumstances and often at the most inopportune times (like job interviews!) and I still have trouble with "th" in the middle or the end of a word. This young lady is a truly talented poet and has other unique and special gifts as well, including her voice. This is a very powerful message! Report
