Long summary, but please read!
Months and months ago, I asked everyone I could find who had or knew someone who had selective mutism what they'd like to tell people about it. I had a list of over 50 people, and these people answered. I was thoroughly disappointed by the turnout, because I had been hoping to get a large part of the community together. Part of the reason it was so late being uploaded is that I was hoping for more responses (and then Real Life went crazy on me).

I took what they said, shortened it so it could fit on a few slides, and put an image (one or two people suggested their own image) with it. Those come from all over the internet. Each person got their own colors and fonts. I also added facts and quotes about selective mutism from other sources. Those are in black and white.

A million thanks to all the contributors:
http://www.youtube.com/user/BoyForsaken ** Extra special thanks to Boy Forsaken for being so awesome: he came up with five excellent messages. I unfortunately could only use one. And then, I lost his message, and he had to find it and send it again. He's the best!
http://www.youtube.com/user/prankisteen ** Thanks to prankisteen for reminding me that I had to post this!
http://www.youtube.com/user/iiTzAmber... ** I selected quotes from a video of hers with her permission.

The two songs are:
"Here I Am" by Kit Rainn http://www.youtube.com/user/KitRainn (I don't think she'll mind me using it)
"Ready Now" from These Are My Own by Amy Carol Webb
