           (Person comes forward and takes the wheelchair)

I figured out something just now......I mean this may not be my first meeting, but I have always wondered how we can all get along so well.  What do we have in common?

Maybe the fact we don't take care of ourselves....but some of us are smart enough, so that's not really it.  And we are all from different walks of life, different types of life....different families.

What is our common ground?  Our point zero?

Then I got it......we all take care of the same person......oh, don't look at me like that!  I know all the people we take care of are different ages, different genders, different colors and different backgrounds, but the truth is that you know.....I am right....

          (He spins the chair around)

 Because the person we all take care of is.........someone else.
