I had this strange dream last night that I was asked to speak on Oprah about education. I think I’m having panic dreams about the interviews I’ll be doing when my book is released.
So I woke up kind of freaked out, and determined to think of something that I could say, in the impossible chance that I was thrust onto the Oprah show without warning. It wasn’t easy because I have never had to speak in front of an audience that would very likely disagree with me. Not to mention Oprah would probably disagree with me.
I didn’t come up with a good, concise blurb to say. Instead, I comforted myself by knowing that the likelihood of it happening is so slim, I might as well focus on keeping myself from being hit by lightening instead.
So, if you were on Oprah, and you had just a couple of minutes to say something, what would you say? If you had an audience with millions of people across the country, what would be a poignant message that would make an impact without making people even more combatative against alternative education?
What do you think?
