As a leader at my facility I am charged with a large number of associates and 13 members of management. I was moved by Mr. Martin’s comment asking the question “Why are you here?” As I sat there and pondered that question, I indeed posed that question to myself. Why am I here? How do I want a monumental event like that night to flow like a river throughout my personal and business life? How can I take the message “Wake Up” and transplant it within my facility? How can I move people like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr and those that came before and after him did?

I left that convention center with a personal challenge. A challenge that my dream was to improve the education of kids in the community that I work in here in Anderson. That message moved me in a way that I haven’t felt moved in sometime. I’ve always been told that I’m a great motivator, a great inspirational speaker, and someone who will challenge you to be more than you think you can be. Well on that night I was challenged. Praise God for leading me there that night to challenge, to be led, to be motivated to do more and be more than I was before I got there. Thank you for the experience and opportunity to be a part of something really HUGE!!
