Sometimes it takes one incident to change the rest of your life. And this was true in Robert’s case. I think God wanted me to learn something from this kind gentleman. So he sat him right next to me on our flight to Singapore.
Robert towers at about 6 feet, but because he has these kind downward slanting eyes, he reminds me of a gentle giant. He seemed really prepared for our 4-hour long flight. Armed with a tablet, chips and a boxful of cookies, he sat quietly watching a movie. He barely moved except to help me pull out a magazine in front of him.
I’m not really the kind of person who can chat up a total stranger, so I have my husband to thank for learning about his story.
