I enjoyed reading this paper. It reminds us so well that stuttering extends way beyond our own individual stuttering experience. The whole world is becoming smaller on this global stage, and stuttering is right there. I recall at the NSA conference this year, meeting a young man from Germany, who was staying as an exchange student with a host family, that wonderfully is stuttering-friendly. What a great experience for this young man from Germany to interct with other kids who stutter. The American kids thought he was so cool because he stuttered exotically. Thanks for sharing! --Pam
