I am aware that I am less than some people prefer me to be,
but most people are unaware that I am so much more than what they see.

Random Encounter

A young lady approached me in public recently, and we had a remarkable conversation about my condition.

Her questions were bold and honest, and she is the first person who has ever asked me if I'm scared.

Really caught me off guard, and although I think I stumbled on my words a bit, I loved the conversation and we both wished it could have continued.

She said she was inspired and thanked me for answering her questions, and I replied that I appreciated her time and genuine inquisitiveness.

We went our separate ways with feelings of gratitude for what was such a random encounter.
