Chapter Two was the litmus test to see if Irvine Talks was a sustainable idea; that it was not just a one-time event. And I am more than convinced that Irvine Talks is not going away anytime soon. I would like to thank everyone who made this event happen. A huge thank you to Connie and Cheryl from the Irvine Public Schools Foundation; we could not have done any of this without your help. Thank you to the incredible performers. I will never cease to be impressed by your courage and honesty. Thank you to everyone that came to Irvine Talks. The event belongs to each and everyone of you who continues to believe in the idea of Irvine Talks; that sharing stories and being vulnerable is something worth fighting for. As long as that idea lives on, I know the future of Irvine Talks is in good hands.
