I know this man. [View all]



I know this man.

Weíve played together in a community college jazz band for a little over a year. He plays piano. Heís clever. He makes hilarious facial expressions when something goes wrong in the music. Weíve never really talked much, but Iíve always known him to be a good guy.

And after seeing this, Iím reminded that every person has a story. I donít know what made him cry like that. I donít know his story. But it matters. All of us have stories that matter.

Even if my fellow jazz musician and I have stories that differ and hardly talk, we have common ground in that we choose to believe in the president. It makes me feel connected. Not only to this pianist I barely know, but to everyone who was touched at the rally. And it doesnít stop in Mentor, Ohio.
