Just wanted to let Dr. Brown

Just wanted to let Dr. Brown know how much I appreciated his assembly with our students here at Franklin-Simpson High School. His message was so sincere, and I felt that our students really listened and believed that he cared about them. His entire message was SO appropriate for our kids. I hope they remember every word of advice and encouragement to get them through touch choices they will have to make! Organization Name: Franklin-SImpson High School, Sandy Mefford

I have nominated Dr. Brown to

I have nominated Dr. Brown to speak at TED. http://www.ted.com/ As an educator, this seems like the biggest national platform and educators all over the US watch videos of speakers. I have seen Dr. Brown speak in Norfolk, VA (either in 2009, or 2010). I am now an instructor at a college in the US Territory of the Northern Marianas Islands. I use videos of Dr. Brown's presentations to my students who will become future teachers. I deeply believe in building relationships between educators and students. My actual address is in Saipan, MP 96950 but you do not have that on your list, so I put down the address of my family in WV. -Cherrie Lovejoy

Whatever you said at the

Whatever you said at the school assembly really worked for my son. He has turned over a new leaf. I thought I would email you right after the event, but I wanted to give it a while to see if it stuck. It has been 2 months and Brian still does the things you instructed. I went on-line and saw some of your videos and I see why you connect so well. You are truly blessed with gifts to positively help others change for the better. I told his school principal, counselor, and his therapist about your impact. Ironically, the therapist has been in your professional trainings. You do a bunch!!!! Keep up the Godly work! Margie Copeland, Ga

Hey, My name is Daunte

Hey, My name is Daunte Everett, I am a college basketball player, who is currently 18 years old and I graduated at 16. I just wanted to say, first and foremost, thank you for giving me the push because I almost and contemplated quitting, because I got cut from my last two junior college teams of being a walk-on . I had to take responsibility and got better with my personal, performance. Because of you, I transformed myself and about to be on scholarship at a D1 school when I graduate from junior college this summer. So thank you for helping me to better myself and improving, inspired me to right a book only not about my life, what I been through but about what to takes not only to get success, but keep it when you get it. The motivation, dedication and inspiration, I appreciate it and want to make myself a reflection of what and who you all are and represent. I've looked to yall as mentors and was wondering, if you could possibly want to check out, read the book when it'll be published in November, the editing will be done in a few weeks and was wondering, if I could send you a copy please. it would mean alot - Daunte Everett

I really enjoyed your recent "Real Talks." I wish EVERYONE would listenlto your message!

Thank You for coming to

Thank You for coming to Potomac State this afternoon. As a young single mom deciding to leave my son and return to college was hard. With the help from my family I am able to do so with piece of mind. But, yet and still I get discouraged.

Hello Dr. Brown, You may not

Hello Dr. Brown, You may not remember me, but I was the girl from Potomac State College who waited after your presentation for your autograph. The girl with the red shirt, brown jacket, black purse, and, of course, a red notebook that had notes from your presentation. I wanted to say more that what I did, but I guess the whole concept of being in front of an amazing person got the better of me and I couldn't speak what I wanted to say. But, sometimes words are better to understand written down that to speak them. So now, I'd like to say, thank you. I am currently a college junior by standards, but a sophomore at Potomac State college. I was originally at Shepherd University, but lets just say I got over whelmed and things didn't go well. As I tell people, I jumped into the fire instead of going around it because I thought I was ready for it. But, now I wish I had been to one of your presentations when I was still a freshman. Even though I am a junior now, sometimes its good to have a reminder. Normally I have trouble remembering things from time to time, but I don't think the presentation you gave at the auditorium at Potomac State will leave my mind for a while. One of the parts of your speech that got me was when you talked to the baseball team saying that if you get something, you need to throw something back. That made me think of a saying that I live by now a-days. Its a simple phrase that I think has a lot of meaning, "Give Respect, Get Respect", because sometimes you need to give something in order to get something back. I also have a lot of sayings, but I think this is the one that stood out the most when I think back on the presentation. But, regardless, you were amazing and your presentation had much meaning. I may not be able to see you next year, but maybe I'll see you at another presentation for the school someday in the future. But that's why I asked for the autograph, because, just like life (and as you said with virginity), you only get one chance. And, while you did have shirts and other items available, I feel that written (and spoken) words have more value because there is a stronger connection. I apologize if I ramble, but I truly felt touched. I'll keep my notes, because there may be a time when I need to teach my own children, or members of my family these things when they really matter. I thank you for being the source of that information and that starting point. Bless you, Dr. Brown, for a reminder that may never be forgotten. Hope to hear from you again soon. Sincerely and with gratitude, Rebecca Herrick

I just wanted to say thanks

I just wanted to say thanks for coming to potomac state. What you said and did was great. Trey Henderson

Doctor Brown, I can't say

Doctor Brown, I can't say enough about not only how you inspired me tonight, but about how positive and encouraging you are. I would like to email you, if that's possible, with my thoughts on your book I purchased tonight and with all of the things I wanted to say, but didn't have the courage to say. Please email me or call me, so that I can be in touch. I aspire to be you one say: making a difference, and loving every minute of it. Please and thank you!

After opening day in

After opening day in Rochester I came home and told my family about you. I actually repeated several pieces of wisdom u shared (and some jokes too)! Today my 14 year old son and I were talking/joking while playing a game and he said, I kid you not, "take it seriously but not personally". Pretty incredible what sticks!! Then my husband came home and sounded a bit like u..told me he downloaded a you tube of you speaking while working out. Not sure "thank you" is enough but the difference you made in our lives already is exponential...I'm already happy every waking morning and like to dance-watch out!!! Best, Erika Lusky

Dr. Brown, I need to tell

Dr. Brown, I need to tell you thank you. I sat through your session today with Newton County School System and what you said..... I needed to hear! I don't mean only in my classroom, school, or system, IN MY HEART AND LIFE! I endured one of the hardest years of my life last school year. My husband and I endured 2 adoption failures, and coming back to school meant facing all those fears head on! Twice last year I left school so excited to be a mom only to return empty. I was absent the last week and a half of school to pick up our baby....again failure. I feel like my life last year was failure, which wasn't fair to my students! This year you have renewed and revived me. God spoke through you to me today in ways I cannot even put into words. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I am a better person for having been in your presence today! Thank you for being a vessel that God used to change my life! A new course was set for me today! I am in the balcony and I am never coming back down! May God continue to richly bless each and everything you do! With Utmost Gratitude, Stephanie Stonek Paraprofessional Newton County Schools

Thank you Dr. Brown for such

Thank you Dr. Brown for such an awesome presentation! I enjoyed every second of listening to you. You captivated me with humor, weaving your life story and your philosophy on how we can as teachers can bring about positive changes in our students by developing relationships with them.

I am so grateful for everything I learned. Well done! Jonda Ward
