Ever since I’ve known Peggy O’Neill (since the late 1970’s) she’s been something of a celebrity. She’s always been a vortex of energy and the center of attention wherever she goes. People love being around her.
Simply put, Peggy has always stood out in the crowd. Which, in a way, is really kind of surprising. For one small reason.
Peggy O’Neill is only 3 feet, 8 inches tall.
And tall she is. Call her “little person” if you want–after all, that is the politically correct term nowadays. But it’s a misnomer. There’s just nothing little about her.
In her usual generous manner, she’s taken her unique perspective on life and turned it into a lesson for all of us through her skill as a talented keynote speaker.
Last year, Peggy was the subject of a wonderful documentary by independent filmmaker, Danielle Lurie, for the Elevate Film Festival. With Peggy’s permission, I’ve posted it here (linked to Google Video).
