“Something’s different, the way I am with people, something’s just different. I find myself saying ‘I love you’ 200 times a day to strangers. I don’t care. I don’t have to know you to love you. I love you. That’s how we’re supposed to be as human beings. We’re supposed to take care of each other. What we see sometimes down here on Earth, there there ain’t no room for that up in heaven.”
