Sometimes you meet people in surprising ways. I was recently at an awards and graduation ceremony for my daughter Emily. She had completed a community leadership program – not bad for a sixteen year old but also not surprising if you know my daughter ( fair chance she’ll rule the world someday . . . ) What was surprising was the speaker that the rather conservative county where I live brought in to speak to the kids and their proud parents : Kirk Nugent. He calls himself “the people’s poet” but I’d describe him as a cross between rapper, performance poet, and motivational speaker. – and he was fantastic. His message was strong. The delivery riveting. And the audience response priceless. Almost everyone was captivated. The few that were not are probably still trying to right their eyeballs in their head.
