24 Mar Because I Have a Voice
Did you ever see the movie, The Kings Speech, about England’s Prince Albert/King George? The man had a terrible stutter and, being royalty, was exposed to both public and private ridicule when faced with the challenge of public speaking. He struggled to communicate daily throughout his life and received constant taunting and ridicule from his father and brother.
In an effort to overcome his speech impediment, he went through numerous doctors and therapists before finding someone who was able to help him – the movie is about his journey.
There is a powerful scene in the movie where he is preparing for his coronation and gets into an argument with his speech therapist. As the argument ensues, the speech therapist challenges Prince Albert as to what gives him the right to sit on the throne and be listened to. As he struggles to respond, Prince Albert angrily yet powerfully claims “BECAUSE I HAVE A VOICE!!”
In this moment, the man who has struggled to give voice to himself for over a lifetime lays claim to his power through claiming his voice. While his stutter continued to be a challenge for him, this moment was pivotal in his healing journey.
