A tribute to stutterers

I’m fascinated with stuttering.

Stuttering – when people repeat, draw out, not complete, or skip words or sounds without meaning to. They say it happens when the brain is not able to send and receive messages in the normal way.

How beautiful.

How beautiful that the man or woman isn’t condemned to silence. How beautiful the strength of someone who knowingly stutters and pushes through anyway. They fight for connection, communication and understanding more than we will ever know.

How beautiful.

The next time you’re in the presence of someone stuttering, give them an unhurried safe space to communicate.

And maybe, just maybe, stuttering is part of our world to help us slow down and hear things we may otherwise miss in normal conversation.
