  9. (A member of the audience asked a question which was inaudible)

    You give comfort to people, don’t question them and don’t expect comfort from them. We should not expect people at home to give us pep talks all the time. Life is like that, sometimes you get angry, sometimes you’re happy, you laugh, you cry, you smile. ...
