Needless to say, the conversation was passionate - filled with all of the emotion one would expect when human beings navigate unchartered waters.
Looking within, I recognized this as our connection - the human connection.

Public relations practitioners are masterful "connectors - relationship builders" or whatever you wish to term it.
