Warrior Speech (July 17th, 2014): "I want anyone that’s here tonight, I want you to know that if you’re being bullied or if you’ve gone through or are going through any of the things that I’ve been through.. Whether it’s an eating disorder, whether you’re bipolar, you’ve been bullied.. And the most taboo subject to talk about which needs to be talked about because it’s spreading, it’s a huge epidemic in this country.. Unfortunately, it’s self-harm and it’s cutting. And I feel like so many people here tonight have struggled with it, or know somebody that’s struggling with it. So if you do, please speak out whether it’s yourself or someone else. Get help, tell that person that you’re there for them and just be the support that they need. I needed a lot of support and I relied on you guys and you were there for me. I know that every single time I play a concert someone hears something, whether it’s one person in the way way back, or it’s someone right here front and center.. you need to hear that if you’re a parent, get your child help.. you could save their life. You could save your friend’s life. And most importantly, you could save your own."
