Some public speakers make you laugh. Some speakers make you cry. Some speakers make you look at life differently.

Sally Karioth is a very special public speaker, because she makes you do all three. It is a gift she has acquired from her varied experiences as a nurse, teacher, writer, talk-show hostess and nationally renowned grief therapist. If one sentence characterizes the message of her speeches, it is her slogan: ''Life is not a dress rehearsal.''

"Everyday," she tells audiences, "you should have at least one exquisite moment."
