No Glossophobia Here!

Glossophobia or speech anxiety is the fear of public speaking. The word glossophobia comes from the Greek γλῶσσα glōssa, meaning tongue, and φόβος phobos, fear or dread.

I have it, but apparently Kilian doesn't. This is one of the many, many things I love about Christ the King school. Each day during morning prayer, students read scripture and prayer requests in front of the entire school. Each week they rotate which class (Kindergarten through 12th) leads it, so everyone gets a chance to speak a few times a year.

So here is Kilian last week. This is mostly for the benefit of grandparents/aunts/uncles, but feel free to watch if you want!!

**They usually all have on matching uniforms, but on this day kids could wear their Earth Days shirts & jeans.

He did great! Aidan and Joshua watched and they said "He did really good" I loved how he looked over at you afterwards.
