An inspirational speaker…

Richard McCann…Richard McCann, gave an amazing speech at a recent black tie event that I was covering. Richard McCann is the son of the first of the notorious Yorkshire Ripper’s victims. He described how his childhood had been filled with violence,drunkenness and deprivation. How he and his elder sister waited up for their prostitute mother to return home after her working night, and how they must have walked straight past her body in the early hours of the morning that she was found by the police. In a moving narrative he explained how he had turned his life around and was now happily married, comfortable and able to forgive Peter Sutcliffe for his crimes. This young man’s attitude to life is an example to everyone who thinks that the world owes them a living or that the odds are against them somehow. A truly inspirational young man, who I enjoyed meeting enormously.
