Patiently waiting for Liz Murray to speak,
I would read her bio week after week, just waiting until this day.
Anxious about what she would share.
I knew she was about to set my soul on fire, so I really didn’t care.
Amazed by her story, From Homeless to Harvard,
Listening to her was like drinking my favorite tea mixed with honey.
She reminded me that everyone has a story.
Don’t leave this world with your dreams still inside of you.
What are your what ifs?
So what if someone says NO, but what if someone says YES.
You will meet people who will change your life forever.
Stop waiting, there is no later.
Make a difference.
There is hope.
Liz Murray, naturally spoke to my soul.
Thankful and amazed by what a person's words have the ability to do.
Inspire someone, someone needs you.
