Daniel Kwan then took the microphone and thanked everyone in the room.
“We’ve said enough tonight,” added Kwan. “Thank you so much to everyone here. You have all inspired me. One of the things I realized growing up is that one of the best things we can do for each other is to protect us from the chaos of this crazy world. Thanks to the storytellers here who did this for me.
