Ladies and gentlemen.  I am pleased to introduce Orphea Proud.  If this sounds like a performance, it's because it is.  Seventeen year old Orphea is performing her life story for you.  Complete with the highs and the lows.  The good parts and the bad.  Yes, she will mention Lissa quite a bit.  After all, Lissa is such a big part of her story.  And what a story it is.
