Dear Scott, I was going through a box at my parents’ house and I came across the first poem I ever wrote. It was when I first heard you speak. You touched my life when I was going through a very difficult time commonly known as puberty. I’m thankful for the advice you had given then, and it has helped me to accomplish several things in my young adult life so far. I am getting ready to graduate from college. I wanted to thanks you for inspiring me to reach some of my goals and to keep going when I thought failure would consume me. It’s taken a long time for me to really come into my own. I’m glad to say that I am so happy, and thank you that first spark.
