Good morning Mr. Deal,

   On Friday I attended your talk to our middle school. I would like to thank you for coming to speak with us. I believe in the three rules you gave us, (read the Bible, listen to your parents and choose your friends) and I also believe many children have been told these rules in several ways by their parents, teachers or even counselors. But many children put these rules aside and believe that they don’t need to follow these rules because “They know what they’re doing.”

I believe being shared these rules by someone who “Did it all, and regretted it all” really made an impact. I know a couple of teenagers who were heading down the wrong track and really needed someone to stop them in their tracks, although many people tried to do so, they carried on going, I feel that you may have finally been the one to get them to realize what road they were heading down by telling them the same rules but from a different perspective.

I saw many faces of realization as something from your talk resonated with other students and with that, I know that you have impacted not only me but them as well.

Thank you for coming to speak at our school I know it will make some big changes in many lives
