I just want you to know i will never forget your speech and you’re my hero now. I have never had a true hero that i could say i know i can make it because this person did. But you’re my hero and for you to experience a lot of the same stuff as I did and for you to come out of it has inspired me.
Your speech/story today was amazing! It really touched my heart. I hope you continue to do what you do & stay strong & push forward! You made me forever great full for the people I have today because, you never know when they could be gone!

Just heard the best motivational speaker ever at our school assembly! You could hear a pin drop or in our case the few students who dropped their phones. He kept the middle school and high school students attention with out even trying. Teachers and students were crying and a lot of hearts were touched today. Kids lined up to talk to him and hug and cry with him after he was through. It was definitely an eye opener for many. He spoke for about an hour and half and kept their attention. It was amazing!
