I saw John Kerry speak. This brings the total list of famous people I have met in person up to two. The first famous person I ever met was Levar Burton. I was at a world youth conference in Hawaii and he came to speak. I don’t even remember what gems of advice I plucked from his panel discussion, but I do remember a table of Austrian teens interrupting by belting out the Reading Rainbow theme song.
And if you’re wondering, John Kerry is one tall brother. Levar Burton is the size of your average lawn gnome.
