Speech

I literally  had a whole post written up for today. Truly, I did. And then I took a minute (more like ten) to watch a speech because my coworker insisted that I do. I don’t watch award shows very much. Really the only one I make a point to watch every year are the Grammys cause I love music and I love watching people come together over music. Last night, the Golden Globes aired on TV and it got a huge amount of hype. I mean it does every year when you have a ton of actors, actresses and directors coming together to celebrate each other and their accomplishments. This year, all the glamorous people wore black. The color black was to symbolize that time is up in regards to people getting away with sexual harassment and abuse in Hollywood and recognizing those who have been strong to come out and tell their “MeToo” stories. The highlight of the night however, besides historical award wins was Oprah Winfrey’s speech when she accepted the Cecil D. Demille Award. I just watched it and let me tell you, I was as moved as everyone in the audience. I mean not only is she eloquent with her words but the conviction in her tone, you can just tell she made a giant impact on everyone in that audience and everyone who watched it secondary like I just did. So, instead of the long post I initially wrote up for today, I’m sharing her speech instead and highly encourage you to watch all 9 minutes and 40 seconds of it because I promise you, it will surely be one you remember:
