"Mr. Wazan described an unbelievable personal journey through unspeakable horrors as a young man.

His new journey of peace is a testament to the resiliency of the soul and well worth the time spent listening to his message.” David Hayden, Colonel, United States Army retired, Corps of Engineers and the Judge Advocate General Corps.

Our members were enthralled and many said that your talk and topic are among the best we have ever had. You moved us!” Harry Thomas, Vietnam Veteran and Board Member Novato Economic Commission.
"In my 20 years in Rotary the only other speaker to get a standing ovation was our District Governor who gets one just by virtue of his position. Sam’s was the best talk that I’ve heard in all of the more than 1,000 Tuesday mornings meetings. It wasn’t just because of his passion or because of his topic or because of his personal experiences. He is well organized and very clear in his presentation and in his connection with his audience. He left us with a ray of hope. He left us wanting more!"
