Dan Royston takes us time traveling with his daughter, Brooke, over a decade plus of distance to the "simple" hug they were finally able to share. In that hug, a father who had abandoned his daughter through life choices, got to share a simple hug with her a decade later. How often do we take simple hugs for granted?

In his talk at Marion Correctional, Mr. Royston brings humor and charm to what is certainly a painful subject.

Right here, in this institution, behind these brick walls and that barbed wire fence ... I experienced, first hand mind you, a temporal event.
