Chris Herren shares his story across the country with the hope of reaching just one person. At a recent presentation in a middle school, Chris opened it up to Q&A and a student raised her hand and asked to take the microphone. With permission from the administration he handed her the microphone and she shared her story, standing in front of her peers, with tears rolling down her face. What happened next was powerful. One by one her classmates silently walked down from the bleachers and formed a hugging circle around her.
This simple act of kindness and support when it was needed most, was a powerful reminder to everyone present that “It is OK to Share Your Struggle, it is OK to Ask for Help and it is OK to Change.” – Chris Herren
