    Once, again you have inspired and motivated me. I am in my final years (studying online/part-time) in gaining my degree qualification. I was getting down in regards to the assessments and their relevance but after listening to this endnote, I will do whatever it takes to get the piece of paper so I can be someone like Mary, I want to connect and help people, I want to make a difference. So thank you, thank you, thank you xxxx
    ps I hope this message finds you well. Your positive attitude etc surely must be kicking the C’s butt!

  3. David, an effing glorious presentation! I’m going to encourage and pester everyone at my library to watch it as we wrap up work on the library’s 5-year strategic plan.

    One observation: You neglected to edit out your first take of the introduction. Your second and much improved take begins at 2:15.

    Thank you for all you do. Please keep on telling us how to be better. Please just keep on. You’re in my prayers.
