"I wanted to tell you how amazing your closing remarks for the 2013 Oklahoma Children's Court Summit were as they reiterated every session and speaker's words and work. I did not stick around to tell you about your awesomeness because I was holding back tears and the dam was not holding very well. I was waiting in the hotel lobby to check out and should have had a recorder of some kind capturing the conversations about the difference you had made with your closing address! Numerous Judges were saying that because of your speech the entire summit was worth attending. I know you share things that are your personal and private experiences but the fact that you beautifully shared those experiences opened minds and hearts. Kind of like a speaker blasting to us "do you get it?" Thank you for teaching us and allowing us to "get it!". 

-Ruslyn Hermanson, Director, CASA of Kay/Noble County.
