"when you smile, i smile, that’s the deal. i will not walk past you and not look you in the eyes and not acknowledge you. instead we will pass each other and say hello. not with our words, for they are not the same; but with our faces. i meet you and i see there is good in your eyes, there’s passion in your heart and there’s a friendly hello in your smile. and for the first time we can relate and appreciate each other. that’s all it takes, that’s where it starts. because i know that you will smile and i will smile and the rest is easy."
