Interesting Journey - Very Insightful

D. J. Burr's story is a very interesting journey. It's hard to imagine how much strength and courage it takes to survive a dysfunctional childhood, child molestation, and being gay......

The narrator, Royal Jaye, really captures the essence of the various tramatic moments. It's almost like bring a fly on the wall of each experience.

Definitely will be recommending it to friends. It's a great story and performance.
