Join us at this celebration where Our Time will pay tribute to David Seidler, the Academy-Award-winning screenwriter of The King's Speech. Mr. Seidler's film demonstrates that there is no limit for people who stutter, as long as they believe in themselves and the value of their voices. The King's Speech, like Our Time, illuminates the importance of finding support through friendship, gaining confidence, and addressing the emotional impact of stuttering. The 4-time Academy Award winning film is promoting widespread awareness about stuttering, which is central to Our Time's mission.
"If you can survive a childhood of stuttering you can survive almost anything. It changes you forever. You know in your heart you survived something wretched, and it didn't kill you.
Indeed, quite the contrary, it made you determined to be heard, to have a voice.
Whether you control your stutter fully or just a bit, you know you have the right to be heard and you insist you will be heard. That's a great victory. No one can ever take it away from you. It will always give you a beacon of light in hours of darkness."
-- David Seidler
