However brief, some people come into our life and leave an everlasting imprint. Yesterday I visited the Center for Children with Disabilities, and I met a 5-year-old little girl. She is blind, born with this condition because her parents we exposed to Agent Orange – a chemical toxin sprayed throughout Vietnam during the war. As I held her hands, I was overwhelmed with emotions. I wanted to hold her, to tell her the world is kind, just and beautiful. I wanted to change her world, but I know I cannot. As my tears fell something magical happened. I saw her dash across the hallway into her classroom to begin her studies. No fear, no regret. Unconditional faith that nothing stood in her way. In that moment, she changed my world and humbled my spirit once more.
