  1. On hears these words “there is no way to adequately describe….” that they have almost become meaningless.

    But, in the case of *whatever* Bee does, and most particularly about her Keynote for Global Learn Day Eight, Bee was “beyond description”.

    This is an amazing woman with a performance that brought both big cheers and big applause. Thank you Bee!!!
