life is fragile

I am doing something different today. I am sharing with you a recreation of the speech I gave at Toastmasters last Thursday. Once I decided what I wanted to talk about, I realized what an emotional impact the subject had on me. I gave the speech everything I had, and was delighted to have won the best speaker award for it. It was my first.

I was not able to get the video cameras on my desktop or laptop computer to capture me standing up in any kind of way that worked. So remember that when I actually gave the speech I was standing up in front of a group, moving about the floor, and using more gestures than I use here.

Still, I was pleased with how well the speech went over and I thought it was worth recreating on video. I hope you enjoy it.
