Finally, the day I had been waiting for, with both dread and anticipation.   I had been reciting the words to myself, over and over again, but my big fear was being overcome by stage fright.   Thankfully, there were rehearsal times that included practice with the teleprompter.

I got VIP service to and from the rehearsals, with check points by the Secret Service.  I am so glad that I focused on the crowd before me.  I delivered my speech differently than I had rehearsed it, due to the energy, passion, and participation of the people.

Wow!  It was a once-in-a-lifetime event.
