Yours for Humanity—Abby 12 years and counting...

As I start my 12th year performing Yours for Humanity —Abby, I am thrilled that audience members of all ages con-tinue to say how much they admire Abby and how amazed they are by her courage to stand up and speak out against the evils of the day and her determination to change the world for the better. And I am humbled when I say that many thank me for portraying this remarkable woman and keeping her legacy alive. One student wrote, “I hope you inspire children to be who they want to be.” And one adult said that after seeing the play, she was going to speak up on a rather sensitive and somewhat divisive topic being decided by her church. I received this email a few days later, “The vote passed overwhelmingly. I (among others) spoke up strongly in favor. I was inspired by Abby and you.” 

Abby continues to inspire and lead 128 years after her death!
