Let me tell you about the Mitt Romney I know! The father of my friend who has set such a great example for me as I entered into my adult life. Let me tell you why I know he will do everything he says he will do........

One... cold December day in the early 1980s, Mitt Romney loaded up his Gran Torino with firewood and brought it to the home of a single mother whose heat had been shut off just days before Christmas.

Years after a business partner died unexpectedly, Romney helped the man’s surviving daughter go to medical school with loans for tuition — loans he forgave when she graduated.

And in 1997, when a fellow church member’s teenage son fell seriously ill, Romney sprinted to the hospital in the dead of night, where he kept vigil with his terrified parents.

Stories like these — tales of long hours spent with grieving families, financial assistance to those in need and timely help given to strangers whether asked for or not — abound in the adult life of this Republican presidential candidate.

And yet these stories are largely absent on the campaign trail. And it is these very stories that give me such a certainty that Mitt Romney will do everything he says he will because in private ...... He is so much greater then the Public figure. he is selfless and hard working and....... He is Humble. These stories are absent because it is not in him to toot his own horn. These are things he would never have considered doing differently.
