They announced Senator Barack Obama to the podium to deliver the keynote address. He spoke for a few minutes and read an excerpt from his new book, Audacity of Hope. Once he was done, he said, “Thank you everyone. Enjoy the rest of your day.” Then he exited stage left. My mouth dropped, we weren’t sure if he left or just stepped outside to go to the bathroom. I looked at you in complete shock, “Baby, I think he left.” Even you said, “WHAT?” I sat there for a minute; my mind was going all over the place. I was racing through everything I had done to prepare for this moment and did he just leave? I didn’t know what to do. My eyes got watery. I was visibly upset. I had NO interest in listening to any of the other authors that were there. I sat there in complete panic and disbelief. Then a voice whispered to me, GET UP! Get up right now! Get up and walk out that door! ~ Chapter 16
