Had to log in to comment on this. I'm really not a very sentimental person in most ways, but reading this really brought tears to my eyes. I was so shy through most of school, and I kinda think most of my classmates didn't really know what to make of me, but every now and again some person, maybe a boy who had many things going for him and was outgoing and confident and cool and had every reason not to notice, would see past the shy facade and say something to me that showed it, maybe even in a silly little year book note, and it would change my world. Those people are so damn important, and remarkably rare. I love that high school Adam was just like our Adam -- defending the underdog, happy to ignore surface stereotypes, looking, always, always, always right at the individual. Time and time again some lovely person on here has commented about meeting him at some radio station where he has shaken hands with fan after fan, feeling sweaty, or old, or dowdy, or boring right up until the moment he looks in her eyes, and sees a real person, and interacts with that real person like a valuable individual in whom he is genuinely interested. What a remarkable, wonderful quality. Seeing things like this just reaffirms everything I already knew about Adam.
midwifespal well said, Adam has a beautiful soul
