The Riddle

What is bigger than the universe, more powerful than love, and it’s the worst thing you could ever possibly do?

So begins the lesson that Lexy taught me in her life and death. This video is from the District 33 International Speech competition – one step away from the semi-finals of the World Championship of Public Speaking.

Below is the speech “The Riddle,” written to edify my friend, Alexis, whom the world lost earlier this year. This is one of the hardest speeches I’ve ever had to write or give. I only hope that Lexy’s message teaches others as it did me.
