Acceptance Speeches

Thank you to everyone who voted for me in the Peter O'Connell faux-dition contest for the opening to ABC's World News with Diane Sawyer! Peter announced the final results two days ago and I won the gold medal!

Four days ago at the opening ceremonies for the Vancouver Winter Olympics, Shane Koyczan's slam poetry about Canada was
accepted worldwide to say the least. As I post Shane's YouTube
video, it has enjoyed 47, 626 views:

Based in Kelowna, I am 245 miles away from the Vancouver Winter Olympics. Shane grew up just 48 miles (or 77 Canadian kilometres)
south of me in Penticton. He has quite a story!
Here is the longer lyrical version of "We Are More."


  1. Congratulations! That is quite a lot of views! Great video.

    Thanks for sharing.
