After one of my recent speeches, a man stood in line for 30 minutes to see me. He was in his 60's, wearing a conservative suit & tie.
He immediately hugged me. He whispered "thank you" and started crying. We stood like that for at least a minute.
Then, he looked me in the eyes, thanked me again, and walked away.
I will probably never know what our experience together meant to him. I don't need to know. I'm just grateful I could be with him in that moment.
