**Fair Warning: This is extremely long.**
Let me preface by saying I can’t claim to know Larry. I’m not that fortunate. But I have had the chance to meet and observe him on several different occasions.
Besides being a great dancer Larry inspires me because every single time I met him he was gracious, kind, and loving. How many people can you honestly say that about? If we’re being honest, not many. If you met me four times, at least one of those times I might be a bitch just because sometimes I get like that. And I’m not even famous. Compare that to the fact that he’s an uber-talented, dancing genius with tons of fans clamoring for his attention most anywhere he goes. Yet, I’ve seen Larry be kind, truly kind, even at times when I know he might have been stressed or tired or aggravated on the inside. The effort he puts forth means a lot to me. It’s the little things that show who a person truly is.
I’m writing this because it needs to be said. It’s been said before, but some folks seem to have short memories. People are always so quick to jump on any scrap of negative bullshit and spread it—sight unseen and facts unknown. I guess that’s the way this world works. Bullshit sticks. Positive, good deeds get buried and ignored. Well, not on my watch. Take a seat and let me testify. Again.
