The Next Great Orator?

We just got back from the school district’s MLK Jr celebration where Mason read his letter to Dr King that I had mentioned in earlier posts.  As a reminder, his letter was submitted to the district after he was selected from his school’s 2nd grade and he was one of four kids in the entire school district to be selected to read his letter.  Yesterday he read the letter to his school during the morning announcements and tonight was the big night to read it on stage in front of quite the large audience.  I am beyond proud of what he wrote, but also extremely proud at how he got on stage with little to no nerves, as the first of all the kids to read and knocked it out of the park while being shadowed by the Teacher of the Year.
