    "Iíll forever remember drawing a mean picture of a kid when I was in 5th grade. I passed it to my friends and laughed. I was a bully. It still haunts me to this day. I know he saw it. I know it hurt him. I felt shame later that day and remember wondering why i did it. Did I do it because I thought it made me bigger than him? Because I thought itíd made me feel more secure about my insecurities? It didnít. It made me small.
    I promised myself that day that is never seek to bring others down again. I havenít been perfect. But I do know that bringing others up and finding the good in each other makes one powerful and strong.
    When I was young my dad would always have this homeless mad over for dinner and would welcome him into our home. I remember being young and thinking he was smelly and dirty. I remember wondering why my dad let him come into our home that was clean. He had a physical deformity in his arm. He was always kind to me when I was young but still I judged him. He was on and off drugs for years and my dad continued to have him over throughout the years from time to time. I remember thinking that my dad was just feeding his habit and helping someone who was beyond help.
    One day the homeless man just disappeared. He stopped coming around. We didnít see him for years.
    Then one day a man knocked at the door and I answered, now in my late teenage years. A handsome tall gentleman in a suit stood at the door. He had a huge beautiful smile and a deep intelligent voice. He drove a beautiful car and had a beautiful woman with him. I recognized him. His smile. His eyes. He was the homeless man that my dad welcomed into our home all those years. He told me he was now a pastor and traveled all over telling his story. He had beat the drugs and had been sober for years. He now had a house and wife. He wanted to come thank my dad. He came to a show the other day in Vegas.
    That story is forever engrained in my mind.
    Love infinitely."

    "Fame is meaningless. Recognition is meaningless. Wealth is meaningless. Cool is meaningless. Love is the source of all meaning. Arrow gives me complete and perfect love. She sees strangers and says hello. She hugs everyone. She sees no color. No class. No religion. If only we all could be 3 years old forever."

    "Being true to oneself above all - never chasing others validation. With time they will all go. But you will always remain."

    I think Dan's words were brilliant and touching and I hope they inspire more people to treat others with kindness and love infinitely!

    He is such an hero and an idol, I'm proud my children look up to him.

    He admits he has done wrong and that he's human, and sees the errors of his ways. I appreciate him so much. I love him, honestly!

    The story made me cry. Again. Dan is such a fantastic and brilliant person, and yet he sometimes thinks he is not good enough. If all the people were at least half as good - this world would be much better place.

    His stories always make me think a lot. This shows that we can all change if we want to. I wish we were all like Dan, then this world would be a better place to live in
