“I just want to let you know how impressed, affected, touched, thankful, and an entire list of other words, I am. I was exactly as you described: thinking that is was going to be like our other assemblies, boring, long, single-sided (since they are usually political assemblies), and just downright uninteresting. Let me say that I was dead wrong. Basically, I found you the most powerful, awe-inspiring, and connected speaker I have ever heard talk on any subject. You seemed to share all of yourself with us, you didn’t try to hold back emotions, and this created an indispensable connection with your young impressionable audience.”
“Thanks for coming to work with the ninth grade. You were excellent.”
