Such was the case when I performed this spoken word piece in New York City at a fundraising event for the Christopher Ricardo Cystic Fibrosis Foundation back in April of 2013. This was the first and (as of this posting) the only time I've ever performed it in front of anyone. As a matter of fact, this is the first and only time I've ever written and performed a spoken word piece in my life. It wasn't a flawless performance, but it was honest, raw and from the heart. At the end of the day, that's all that really matters. If you speak with passion, the rest takes care of itself.
I hope you enjoy my words and that they inspire you to help our community achieve the greatness we work so hard for every single day.
