    This is definitely a great way to explain a troubled time and make a turn around for the good. Loved how you interacted with the audience. It is a really inspiring and story that should reach out to those in need.

    Just like the person that used drugs and then got his life changed and introduces himself as “Hello my name is the son of the on true King”. Inspiring the song “Hello My Name Is” by Mathew West.

    Thanks for coming to McAAP and entertaining us as you informed us.

  58. Duane

    Thanks Bernie for coming to MCAAP. Your story was very touching but at the same time, on point. Nobody truely understands the real tragedies that happen every day and how it affects others, until a tragic day your worst nightmare becomes reality. The rule of ten will apply always. What ever we do in life will directly affect 10 people in a personal way, those 10 people will then affect 10 others. These actions can be positive or negative. Thanks again for taking the time to open your heart and fell your srory in a manner only you can pull off, well done sir, well done.
