Dear Tyler, I just wanted to say a few things about your act to help people. I feel that what your doing will change the way that all people will look at life. I want to let you know that I full on support you in this epic act to help those who know exactly what you have experienced and still are experiencing.

You spoke yesterday at the High Risk Driver class at Legacy. I love your passion and intensity. Your deep appreciation for life intrigues me. I want to hear you speak again. They should give you a bigger time slot, I feel like you are incredibly moving and successfully send the appropriate message for that class. You keep it interesting! I was trying to not doze off, and only while you were speaking did I succeed. Thank you.

Thank you Morgan! I always pressure them to give me more time... It's always a hit and miss though. I can't stand when the class becomes so boring that people block it out. How is anyone suppose to learn that way!!! They run the class but they don't have control over the class... I really appreciate you writing to me.

Tyler, I saw you speak at my (mandatory) High Risk Driver Course at Emanuel Hospital on November 24, 2012. I was likely one of the only individuals who wasn't there in exchange for paying a citation I received. I was required to attend as well as pay the full fine, due to having proven the officer wrong on all accounts, and the judge not appreciating my avail. To address my "win", he sent me to the class. This made me pretty bitter as I sat through the class. All I heard was useful, and very well presented by Rob. It wasn't until you took the stage that it hit me. It hit me like a ton of bricks. You have had years of your life taken, countless surgeries, and continuous physical and emotional pain, yet you had a permanent smile on your face as you spoke of your gratitude. I have a wife, a two year old son, a beautiful home, a wonderful God I serve, a great occupation, no pain, and I still found a reason to be upset that day. I was speeding, and for no reason. I had no meeting or impending event and I felt entitled enough to break the law that day. You have helped change my outlook on life and the way I live it when behind the wheel. Your calling is truly a gift and I ask that you never stop. Thank you for taking the time to speak to us last Saturday, no one else listened, please know that there was one who did.

-Andy
