A Very Special Lady
This was my most special moment of the swim. This lifelong Detroit resident wanted to meet me, and broke into tears when we did meet. Here is what she said to me ... "People believe that the problem with Detroit is apathy. It is not apathy. It is that people have given up hope, and without hope, you die inside. I never thought I would give up hope, but I did. Then when I heard about your swim, I had to come here and meet you. Today you restored my hope. Today you gave me my life back."
My traditional post-swim meal (thanks to Team Dreyer) ... Seafood Sub from Subway! Are you listening, Subway? Sponsorship?!
