Lance Black is extremely talented, has a good heart and is a "healer" in the way that he wants to help kids across the country not to feel the pain in their lives that he did when he was young and trapped. His acceptance speech, as well as the tail end of Sean Penn's, blew me away. Eloquent, dignified and compassionate.

I will proudly admit that I started bawling through his speech. :)
