If you're alone, there will always be those who'd turn deaf ears to you, even if you
had Obama's talent for oratory. But just because you got turned down again and again.
doesn't mean you should just pack up and leave. Giving up means ending the chance
of ever finding someone who genuinely cares to listen. It's sadder than not trying at all.
So if you have yet to find that ear, keep on going, and eventually, one day,
you will find it right before you very eyes with a huge sigh of relief.
