This is wonderful. You are such an eloquent speaker and do such justice to Abby in your research and knowledge of her. You had me spell bound in this piece as well as last night in your after speech...things that I didn't know of her.

You are an important element in many ways today with our world troubles and in keeping Abby's heart felt truths alive and in the forefront. Bravo to you!
