I listened to this. It was extremely powerful and made me cry. There's a surprise here that I don't want to ruin. It's very uplifting. Sometimes our small acts of bravery have far reaching, world changing consequences we aren't aware of. It's never too late to do the right thing. You never know what might change because of it.
