'Humans of New York': Photog Gone Viral | Video - ABC News

'Humans of New York': Photog Gone Viral | Video - ABC News

The video link above takes you to a segment of ABC's nightline. It is the story of Brandon Stanton.This is such a moving video and this is such an inspiring young man. He reminds me of an article I read a few days ago. The title of the article was The One Thing You Should Ask Everyone You Meet. Do you know what that thing is? You should ask, "What's your story? Who are you?" What we usually ask is, "What do you do?" But that doesn't define us. Where we've been, where we're at and where we're going defines us. Who we've met, who've we touched and who we've inspired defines us and certainly, the people who've touched and inspired us define us. That's what makes each person an individual and makes each person interesting. I told one of my nieces when she was young and a bit arrogant as most teenagers are, "Don't dismiss anyone on outward appearance because I can tell you not only does every person have some sort or wisdom to share but the best story may come from the most unlikely source."
