Also, Oprah made this huge speech at the ball praising Lady Gaga about how she is helping Americans to be the best of themselves. There’s millions of other Americans who represent that for me. Is it about numbers? About how much you’re selling? Is it truly about the journey?

That journey’s about four miles.
If I have harmed anyone, in any way, either knowingly or unknowingly through my own confusions, I ask forgiveness.
If anyone has harmed me, in any way, either knowingly or unknowingly through their own confusions, I forgive them.
And if there is a situation I am not yet ready to forgive, I forgive myself for that
For all the ways that I harm myself, negate, doubt, belittle myself, judge or be unkind to myself through my own confusions, I forgive myself.
