Closing
Carl finished telling his story. John said, "This was a very touching story. I understand what you've been through." He wiped a tear from his eye. Peter had been crying, too. He said, "You're living a good life, mate." Stan, who rarely cried, was also crying. He said, "Yes, especially compared to what you've been through." Allen said, "I'm really glad you are living a good life." Erin and Lola hugged Carl. They admired how brave he was for telling his story. Erin, of course, sort of knew what he went through. After all, she had been abused by her grandfather. Paul placed a hand on Carl's shoulder and said, "You're a brave man, Carl. You're a brave man." Carl said, "Thanks for supporting me while I told my story. I'm glad that things have turned out for the better."
