If you're in Georgia, see if you can work it out! I've wanted to hear him speak for a long time, but haven't as of yet had the privalege. I'm maxed on my days out of school, so as of now, I don't think I'll be able to get up there. I'm going to try to get some of our teachers there. (We are 3 1/2 hours away so it takes some time to get there.
