I was a young adult searching for direction and vision when I first came across his books. I myself have been involved with communities and volunteering groups...and to put simply, Vanier's words became a revelation to me.I was moved by Vanier's outlook, in particular, the way he looked at people. It was as if he'd unlock something wonderful with his dedication and experience. I was in tears when I came across his testimony of chidren with "radiant faces" in his memoirs.If he reads this, at part me would wish to speak and learn from him. He is my hero. He is my light.
