It’s been an incredible blessing to share The Story Behind The Picture at over 150 events in three countries. Below are comments from people in attendance and a fairly comprehensive list of the events.
Here’s what people are saying after hearing Michael’s story:
“We invited Michael to give the opening address during the general session of our 2007 statewide pro-life conference in Pittsburgh. His story was so compelling, his graphics so vivid and his presentation so authentic that our participants gave him outstanding reviews. We were so impressed that the very next year we invited him to give the keynote address at our 2008 statewide celebrate life banquet in Harrisburg. I can tell you that as wonderful as his first address was, the second one was even better! People could not stop talking about Michael and his story. I have given the highest recommendations to others considering Michael as a speaker. If you want a speaker who has a relevant and almost unbelievable story of true courage and integrity in the face of great adversity in the cause for demonstrating the humanity of the unborn child, Michael Clancy will deliver!” Michael Ciccocioppo- Executive Director- Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation
“Thank you for sharing your moving testimony at the PregnancyCare of Cincinnati this evening. The photograph is nothing short of a miracle of God and your story is a blessing to many! Be strong and courageous and know that this photograph and your journey has saved many innocent lives! Thank you again for sharing your testimony and may the Lord continue to bless you.” Jaclyn
“I was in the audience last night in Winchester at Fellowship Bible Church. I am humbled and honored that God has allowed our paths to cross. My thirteen-year old son was with my husband and I. At first I did not want to bring him because I thought he would be bored and he thought he would too. Once you took the stage with your story and God standing with you – my son never moved. I know you made a lifetime impact on him…I only wish that there were more teenagers in that room. I pray that you will continue to always let God use you. You have touched more people than you will ever know…just by your humble service.” Jill D
“The unique ministry God has called you to is still bearing much fruit Michael. There are people everyday, for the first time, hearing your story and understanding the truth of the pro-life message. I have had the great privilege of hearing you speak and keep you in prayer. Your passion is changing hearts. God bless you.” Kathy P.
“Thank you so much for your vulnerability this evening in sharing your story at the Pregnancy Resource Center Banquet. It touched me and those at my table in ways you will never know this side of Heaven.” Carol D
“Thank you so much for making the trip to Madison, Wisconsin to speak at the 40 Days for Life Kickoff rally. It was so wonderful to meet you, and your talk was incredibly moving. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a speaker with the passion, conviction, and emotion that you displayed. It was exactly the sort of boost that will help us launch this fall’s campaign. God bless you. I hope our paths cross again. Thank you for your important work.” Steve K
“I just wanted to take the time to thank you for standing up for those who can’t stand up for themselves. I was greatly moved when you came to speak to us at my high school, Pius X High School in Lincoln, Nebraska. Growing up in a Catholic school every year we made Pro-life posters and 7th & 8th grade essays but it never really “clicked” until I heard you speak today.” Student
