Journal of activities:
We had a magical day today. I woke early to prepare my mind for the excitement of delivering a keynote speech to more than 200 people who had an interest in violence prevention. At 5:00 am I went to the hotel gym and ran a brisk half marathon. Yesterday I did not have an opportunity to exercise, as I was traveling and then visiting with people in preparation for today. I listend to a group of young people who participated in a magnificent program called Reality Changers. I delivered the keynote speech after Julio Marcial honored me with a wonderful introduction. The crowd responded really well to my message and closed by giving me a standing ovation. I had a wonderful, wonderful time and met many people who may prove instrumental in efforts Justin and I are making to build awareness about our work.
