This video from the Scottish Stammering Network has gone a bit viral, and for good reason. John McIntosh of Glasgow chose not to speak at his own father’s funeral. 28 years after his dad died, John, now 58, finally decides to “tell” his dad why he chose not to speak up that day.
In the emotional film John Macintosh says:
“I let that whole day pass me by without a word, and worse, I pretended it was because there was nothing really to say. Why was I so completely unable to do what had to be done? Because of my stammer. I let it beat me again”
(The Chair of the Scottish Stammering Association, James Stewart, kindly gave permission for this important video to be shared here. The Scottish Stammering Association intends to release similar personal videos once per week leading up to October 22, which is of course ISAD day.)
