May we all have ability to treat all with the respect, dignity and equality like the actions of Pope John Paul. I was in audience and met the Pope one day in Rome 20 years ago. As he held my hand my college travelling companion flew/floated off the ground from behind me, his hand reaching and slideing down the back of the Pope John Pauls head knocking his beenie(?)and landing on the ground next to us. The Pope never missed a beat as he smiled and laughed as he reached to assist my very excited friend. I WILL NEVER FORGET HIS PRESENCE. kgroner
