    Thank you for visiting Sacajawea Elem school today. I was privileged to be a substitute teacher today, and got to hear you speak. It was both fun and inspiring. The students and I wished we had been able to ask you what happened to your friend with all the hair – Gary was it? Do you still keep in touch? Thank you again!
