He made my day!

  Actually, I have never heard of the name of John Glenn till today.

  John Herschel Glenn, Jr. (born July 18, 1921) is a retired United States Marine Corpspilot, astronaut, and United States senator. He was the first American to orbit the Earth and the fifth person in space. He flew theFriendship 7 mission on February 20, 1962. In 1965, Glenn retired from the military and resigned from NASA so he could be eligible to stand for election to public office. As a member of the Democratic Party he was elected to represent Ohio in the U.S. Senate from 1974 to 1999.
  He is such a nice and kind person that when he came from his fancy workplace, he showed nothing but humbleness. We chatted like friends, even though I was kind of nervous at that time. I could hear that my voice is trembling which is so embarrasing.
  There is a little trouble uploading the picture that catches our smiles. So everyone is free to come to me to see it. Though I am pretty sure that nobody is gonna come.
  Anyway, maybe a small thing that touches our heart can make a day. A thing that offend others can destroy their whole day, so try to be gentle to everyone. I am still learning that. Above all, looking forward to the east coast trip!
