King’s Speech

“After decades of characters who stutter being portrayed negatively in movies, it is thrilling for people who stutter to revisit the story of King George VI” states a site about the movie. It is inspirational for all of us, including people with disabilities, to be reminded that persistence and practice can improve many challenges.  In the oscar winning movie, Winston Churchill explains too that he once had a speech impediment but ” turned it into an asset”.  If you haven’t seen the movie, you might want to. If you’re not into movies, the many stories about King George VI provide hope and strength.
