Ignited Passion! Miss Iowa

That's the best way to describe it! Today I was a guest at the 2008 Ignite Your Passion VIP Camapign for Easter Seals. As many of you know, myself and Gretchen Meyer have been collaborating for the past 6 years, writing songs that define the message that Easter Seals inspires. Our sixth song, "I Wish You Love" was featured during a very moving video and the best part........ I got to meet and talk with Abbey Curran, Miss Iowa USA 2008. Abbey is the first person with special needs to make it into a national pageant. She gave an awe inspiring speech about competing with her disability (Cerebral Palsy) and her life's journey. One thing that stayed with me, besides her obvious ability to challenge the status quo, was one of the thoughts she left us with, "don't miss the point of your life." Thank you Abbey. April 11 Abbey will compete in Las Vegas on NBC for the title of Miss USA. Abbey is also slated for an appearance in People magazine.
