Speech A Doorway To Opportunities

What is speech? When asking someone this question someone might look at you like you have lost your mind. Well of course speech is a form of communication but there is totally more than a conversation with a friend, family, or even a stranger.

With out speech where would we be? How would we get points across that need to be heard? The answers to this would nowhere and we wouldn’t. Or nation would not be anywhere where it is today. After all isn’t the first amendment Freedom of Speech? With great leaders they have been able to comfort or nation in times, inform, or even lead. Thanks to speech we have been able to involve ourselves more than just cavemen.

Speech is the most critical skill one needs to know. While as a young child we use this to be able to express how we feel, what we need, and to learn. From a very young age we as humans hear this strange thing in the womb. Parents coach and coach their young children to hear what their first words are. Moving on we use this skill to make friends, learn, and to be able to live a normal life.

After all how many years of English do we take through out our school career. Words are doorways to life and with out speech we wouldn’t be able to share that great gift with others. I am personally thank for to hear my son’s voice every morning and night.

Then we move on to adult hood to where this communication skill is polished and used in a daily basis. In job interviews we are able to tell the person hiring you why you are possibly the best for this job. Personality through speech is a great thing. You can tell a lot about someone with a short conversation.

    I love the line about words being doorways to life. Speech is so often underrated. You make fantastic points and it was easy to read and understand.

    You have an incredible thought process and super silly approach to your deliverance of those thought. I am completely amused at you and yet sense quite the depth you have.
