Description

I was fortunate to be a speaker at the "Rally Against Pain" held this year in Washington D.C. This is the speech that I gave, but rest assured that I was only one of many talented speakers at the rally. To see all of the speeches, please go to https://vimeo.com/album/4219974 and use the password "view" (without the quotation marks).

You can learn more about the "Rally Against Pain" by going to their website: https://rallyagainstpain.com/
