The strength, optimism, and self-awareness that Debbie and her children possess in the face of such difficult obstacles is truly uplifting. They told their stories with courage and honesty. They spoke candidly about events without embellishment or censoring. We felt inspired to do a better job in interacting with the people we meet and our employees. Their positive outlooks uplifted us. I have recommended these speakers and Debbie’s book to my associates, neighbors, relatives, and friends.
