    Joe, now I am officially speechless. That acceptance speech was a poem and brought tears. Never heard this before. Thanks so much for saving it in your drafts folder and sharing it now.

    We brought her to the Rosenberry UNC Writers’ Conference in 2012 and she was magnificent. And that speech is 💯🖤
