So she was my big inspiration. My granddad and grandmother...who lived next door and they were incredibly important to me growing up...then when I was about fifteen or sixteen I went to a Youth Day in Florida Southern University in Central Florida...and they had a guest minister that gave this incredible speech...and it was a key turning point in my life and his name was Jay Wallace Hamilton...he gave us this message that was so radically different from anything I've every heard within a church setting, he said "don't be afraid to be yourself...people are always gonna want to try to sell you on safety in life but go take some risks, find out who you are and let yourself be forged for the fire of life,"...and it kind of like rearranged my brain cells...it was very life-changing for me... Q: Gay, let me ask you, can you recall thinking about and I've had, I can relate to some experience when somebody makes a single statement and suddenly re-calibrates and refocus your life because the word are so profound and applicable. Do you remember making a decision sometime and after that, those words came to the fore and that sense of being able to have those limits removed or that encouragement to go beyond that to really be yourself and not be afraid to be yourself, really played a role in some decision or action you took?
