I never realized how much it could make a difference until one day I was talking with a prof down in our studio lounge who was taping his first video classroom series.

Maybe ten years later I ran into him at a funeral of the guy who directed the series, and he introduced me to his wife and said, "This woman made me feel like I could do anything and not to be nervous." And he explained to me (baffled as I was) how that encounter made a difference for him. I never knew. A small thing -- but oh, some of the big things that happen and we never know. It's why I believe we have angels on earth.


Would love to hear your comments!
