HINDSIGHT - THE PERSPIRATION PRINCIPLES : YOU GET WHAT YOU WORK FOR, NOT WHAT YOU WISH FOR.
THE THING THAT DISTINGUISHES ONE PERFORMER FROM ANOTHER IS HOW HARD HE OR SHE WORKS. THAT'S IT. AND WHAT'S MORE, THE PEOPLE AT THE VERY TOP DON'T WORK JUST OR EVEN MUCH HARDER THAN EVERYBODY ELSE. THEY WORK MUCH, MUCH HARDER.

Howard Tullman Acceptance Remarks
I want to thank Jonny and everyone else at Imerman Angels for this great award and for all their amazing work and unstinting service in support of so many others.
I want to thank my dear friend Lisa Madigan for being here tonight and for her kind words. She continues to be my favorite oxymoron: a politician you can believe in.
I want to thank my co-chair Richard Price who instantly agreed to help and support me in this endeavor. He’s one of the city’s great professional and charitable leaders and an amazing cheerleader for everything that’s right in Chicago.
And finally, I want to thank all of you for your generous support of this great cause and for honoring us with your presence tonight. Having so many friends here has made a special night even that much more spectacular. (A special shout-out to Joe Shanahan for being with us and for being a guy whose courage and grace has been a true inspiration. Joe was METRO before metrosexual was even a word.)
We all think we’re immortal until our own lives (or the lives of those we love dearly) are touched by sadness, loss, injury or disease and then we realize how fragile our lives really are; how precious our health is; and how fortunate we are to have our family and friends around us.
The very best we can do is to live our lives fully every day (no one does this better or more enthusiastically than Jonny) and also to resolve as well to help as many others along the way as we can.
My life has been blessed in too many ways to count, but we all have rough times as well when we need the strength and love of our families, and I know that I wouldn’t be standing here before you tonight without the constant love and support of my wife Judy for so many years and through every peak and every valley we’ve encountered together. I want to take a special moment to thank her and to share this honor with her.
I tell the hundreds of eager entrepreneurs that I deal with every week at 1871 that no one today does anything by themselves and so I’m also extremely grateful that I have always been surrounded, enabled, inspired and empowered by the efforts, commitment and dedication of other special individuals whose actions, passions and examples have enriched my life as well.
But at the end of the day, it’s the unexpected and unrequested care and kindness of strangers who offer their support in our times of need that most surprises us and reminds us of the place and the importance that love and charity will always have in our lives.
The particular brilliance of Jonny’s idea – to organize and scale the power of one-to-one peer assistance – is that it turns the rewards of unselfish service to others from a conceptually nice and incidental thing to do into a visceral, concrete and continual connection between two people that can last a lifetime; enhance the lives of both individuals; and serve as a constant example for others that we each have the power and ability to help make our world a better place. In the Jewish tradition, we call this “tikkun olam” which means repairing the world. And that is what I believe that the Imerman Angels do every day.
This is why I have been a long-time supporter of IA and why I’m so honored and grateful that many of you here tonight have - on my behalf – joined with us to help move this great organization forward and to extend its reach and impact so that they can continue each day to make a difference in the lives of so many.
Thank you again.
