Mary's presentation is built upon the inspiration that the world renown flash online movie - the Who I Am Makes A Difference Story (viewed 3 million times within its first 3 months) generates to make a positive, self-sustaining difference.
The Story: A teacher in New York acknowledged and honored every one of her high school students. Then she invited her students to honor people making a difference in their community. One of these acknowledgments dramatically altered the life of a business man and his 14 year-old son.
It is a reminder to us all to speak those compliments and acknowledgments out loud as we are thinking them, and not hold back because we just never know when ... Our Presence May Be The Very Present Someone Needs.
