Default Insteresting Story... especially due to recent events.

The Norwegian newspaper VG has reported a story about a
newly-wed trying to get to Norway to be with her husband, and the
stranger who helped pay an unexpected luggage surcharge. The
blog "Leisha's Random Thoughts" has translated the story.

It was 1988, and Mary Andersen was at the Miami airport checking in
for a long flight to Norwayto be with her husband when the airline
representative informed her that she wouldn't be able to check her
luggage without paying a 100 surcharge:

When it was finally Mary's turn, she got the message that would crush
her bubbling feeling of happiness.

-You'll have to pay a 103 dollar surcharge if you want to bring both
those suitcases to Norway , the man behind the counter said.

Mary had no money. Her new husband had travelled ahead of her to
Norway , and she had no one else to call.

-I was completely desperate and tried to think which of my things I
could manage without. But I had already made such a careful selection
of my most prized possessions, says Mary.

As tears streamed down her face, she heard a "gentle and friendly
voice" behind her saying, "That's okay, I'll pay for her." Mary
turned around to see a tall man whom she had never seen before.

-He had a gentle and kind voice that was still firm and decisive. The
first thing I thought was who is this man?

Although this happened 20 years ago, Mary still remembers the
authority that radiated from the man.

-He was nicely dressed, fashionably with brown leather shoes, a
cotton shirt open at the throat and khaki pants, says Mary.

She was thrilled to be able to bring both her suitcases to Norway and
assured the stranger that he would get his money back. The man wrote
his name and address on a piece of paper that he gave to Mary. She
thanked him repeatedly. When she finally walked off towards the
security checkpoint, he waved goodbye to her.

Who was the man?

Barack Obama.

Twenty years later, she is thrilled that the friendly stranger at the
airport may be the next President and has voted for him already and
donated 100 dollars to his campaign:

-He was my knight in shining armor, says Mary, smiling.

She paid the 103 dollars back to Obama the day after she arrived in
Norway . At that time he had just finished his job as a not so highly
paid community worker in Chicago, and had started his law studies at
prestigious Harvard University.

Mary even convinced her parents to vote for him:

In the spring of 2006 Mary's parents had heard that Obama was
considering a run for president, but that he had still not decided.
They chose to write a letter in which they told him that he would
receive their votes. At the same time, they thanked Obama for helping
their daughter 18 years earlier.

And Obama replied:

In a letter to Mary's parents dated May 4th, 2006 and stamped 'United
States Senate, Washington DC ', Barack Obama writes:

'I want to thank you for the lovely things you wrote about me and for
reminding me of what happened at Miami airport. I'm happy I could
help back then, and I'm delighted to hear that your daughter is happy
in Norway . Please send her my best wishes.

Sincerely,
Barack Obama,
United States Senator'.

The parents sent the letter on to Mary.

Mary says that when her friends and associates talk about the
election, especially when race relations is the heated subject, she
relates the story of the kind man who helped out a stranger-in-need
over twenty years ago, years before he had even thought about running
for high office.

why hilary tho man.
