Ricky at Pullen


This past Sunday, Ricky was asked to speak at Pullen Baptist Church. Turns out he is a phenomenal public speaker. I still prefer the Ricky who hangs out on the street corner smoking Newports, but church Ricky looked quite comfortable up there on the pulpit. He had the congregation fully engaged and tearing up. Could there be a future in public speaking for this homeless man? We'll have to wait and see. Here is the 5 minute video and two local news sources that wrote about the speech:

He really did such a great job. And it was almost as much fun to watch Michael and Kevin respond to his speech. They were glowing with pride, congratulating each other on a job well done, hard work payed off.

He did a great job. Why did I not know about this before it happened? I would have loved to have been there.
