Every 1 Voice Matters

Let your voice inspire people everyday, so much that they think about themselves. Let your voice be the thing that light a fire in others, keep them going even if it hurts. Let your voice to be the one they hear in their dream. You are a special gift and you are worthy.
Your voice is your tool and represents you. It's very important to have a good voice where you can be understood.
Stammering is different than stuttering. Stutterers have trouble with the letters, while stammerers trip over entire parts of a sentence. We stammerers generally think of ourselves as very bright.
You should be able to voice your opinion and respect the voice of the other side. You should be willing to educate yourself and know what it is you're dealing with.
I still feel like I have a lot of growing up to do 'til I find the voice. Everybody has their own voice and their own thing they want to say to the world.
