Last time I saw a pair of these young guys they were sitting at a table in a fast food restaurant. I recognized them by their dress and the books they had. I spoke to them and said it made me feel good to see people out working to do good in the world.

I said something like… No, sorry, I’m a hard nut to crack. I’ve worked out my own understanding of those things and am not very responsive in areas that I’ve already thought long and hard about… and made my own peace with.
