The Stuttering Association for the Young (@sayorg) is a national non-profit organization that provides support, advocacy, and life-changing experiences for young people who stutter, ages 3-18. Over 70 million people stutter on a daily basis, including 5% of all children.
I wish @sayorg existed when I was child, because I would have avoided a lot of shame & anxiety.

SAY provides a supportive space of empathy, friendship, and inspiration for children who stutter and their families. There are camps, speech therapy and a confident voices program.
As a person who stutters, it's an honor to be a part of the @sayorg Virtual 2021 Annual Gala Fundraiser. Join us on Thursday, May 13th at 7pm EST for an inspiring Live Stream Performance celebrating the voices of young people who stutter!
This pandemic has been difficult on children. If you know a child who stutters, please share this event celebrating the voices of young people who stutter. If you're in a position to donate then please consider. 🙏🏾

To own a tiger or other large cat in Texas, all you have to do is qualify for a permit. So who is eligible for a permit to own a tiger under Texas law? Just about anyone.
After seeing that tiger loose in Houston, I went down a rabbit 🕳. These are the popular exotic pets allowed in Texas.…
Tigers are not meant to be pets. If it were to get scared and attack someone then people would say “the tiger went crazy.”

"Where is your backup? This is our damn Capitol building and y'all are letting it get destroyed on your watch. Fu*k all y'all. Call for backup! IF THEY DON'T WANT TO GIVE YOU BACKUP THEY OBVIOUSLY DON'T GIVE A SH*T ABOUT YOU" These people want blood."
"Death is the only remedy for what's in that building. You need to stand up and you need to scrap. Everyone in there is a treasonous traitor" - Peter Francis Stager
