I loved what D said when he discussed his appearance at the Southwest Florida Reading Festival in Fort Myers with Taya Kyle. Although the whole not ordering his books thing pissed me off! D said, "Suddenly her audience became my audience too because our stories were bigger than color, political endorsements, and ideologies. We were identifying those universal truths that connect us all.....'But at the core, I think we all want the same things, like happiness, success, love, and the ability to make our families proud. It's that simple." This is important to recognize.
