"IN 1963, I SAT IN A SCHOOL ASSEMBLY AND WATCHED A PRETTY GIRL JOIN A PERFORMER AND HIS DOG ON STAGE. THE GIRL WAS CONFIDENT AND JOYFUL, AND SHE INTERACTED WITH THE PERFORMER AND HIS CANINE SIDEKICK AS IF SHE WERE AN 'AUDIENCE PLANT'. I THOUGHT TO MYSELF, "I HAVE TO FIND A WAY TO MEET THIS GIRL."

TRUTH BE TOLD, I DIDN'T POSSESS THE SELF ESTEEM THAT WOULD PROVIDE ME WITH THE COURAGE TO INTRODUCE MYSELF. BESIDES, SHE WAS IN COLLEGE PREP, DESTINED FOR GREATNESS, AND I WOULD BE JOINING THE WORKFORCE AFTER HIGH SCHOOL. OUR LIVES WERE DIVERGENT.

SEVERAL MONTHS LATER, A MUTUAL FRIEND ARRANGED A MEETING FOR US. TODAY, 40 YEARS LATER, THAT GIRL AND I ARE PROUD PARENTS, AND GRANDPARENTS. WE CAME TOGETHER IN 1963 BECAUSE OF THE POWER OF OUTFLUENCE, AND IT HAS THE POWER TO TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE, TOO."
