Statements

People with tourette syndrome are very different from you and I they have to be very confident in themselves to go out in public or in situations where there is allot of people. So i think these people shouldn't be mad fun of or laughed at for little vocal or physical tics because they shouldn't be mad fun of for being brave and confident in themselves, cause that's something much easier said than done.
