  • - I was so scared.

  • I was eight years old.

  • I hid behind my grandmother.

  • Back in the days of food stamps,

  • I remember we went to the store

  • and we were getting these groceries

  • and grandma was taking these little coupons off

  • and giving them to the clerk and this man looked over

  • and very loudly said, "Will you look at that?"

  • "Will you look at all that good food that woman has?

  • "My family doesn't have good food like that."

  • And he says, "And I'm paying for that, old woman."

  • "How are you ever gonna pay me back

  • "for all I've done for you?

  • "How are you ever gonna pay society back

  • "for everything that we have done for you?"

  • My grandmother pulled me out from behind her

  • and she put her hands on my shoulders

  • and here's what she said.

  • "I will never be able to pay you back.

  • "I will never be able to pay society back.

  • "But do you see this child?

  • "Some day, this child will pay you back

  • "in ways that you cannot imagine."

  • I didn't believe her then, but she believed in me.

  • I learned leadership by being a good follower.

  • The leaders in my life have asked me

  • to do some of the most difficult things.

  • I had a leader that asked me to risk my life in Vietnam.

  • We were up on this hill and we were trapped

  • and we were outnumbered 20 to one.

  • They were coming up to kill us.

  • And they radioed us and said,

  • "Uh, you're gonna die 'cause we can't get to you

  • "'cause of the fog, but if we blow up half the hill,

  • "you can go down that half and get away.

  • "But we need five of you to stay back

  • "and slow up the enemy so they don't flank

  • "the ones that are escaping."

  • Really?

  • Who would that be?

  • (audience laughs)

  • And Sergeant Parker came to us and he said,

  • "We have to do this."

  • I said, "We what?"

  • He says, "It's our responsibility."

  • I said, "Responsibility?"

  • He said, "You know what responsibility is, Richard?"

  • "It's a word made up of two words,

  • "the word response and the word ability.

  • "Responsibility isn't what someone puts on you.

  • "Responsibility isn't your job description.

  • "Responsibility isn't a paper you sign.

  • "We all find ourselves looking at situations

  • "and we all find ourselves with abilities

  • "and what we have to ask is, given my abilities,

  • "what then will be my response to those abilities?

  • "Do we have the ability to slow them up?

  • "Do we have the ability to save these lives?

  • "We do, so what is our response?"

  • I had a leader who talked me into never retiring

  • and working till the day I die.

  • (audience laughs)

  • We adopted four little disabled girls in December,

  • ages nine to four.

  • I'm 66 years old.

  • This was not my idea for my golden years.

  • (audience laughs)

  • But they were gonna split them all up

  • if we didn't take them.

  • We were the only ones who could take them.

  • And I asked my wife, "Why do you think we should do this?"

  • And she looked at me and she said,

  • "It's our responsibility."

  • And did we have the ability to do it?

  • Yeah.

  • And what was our response to that ability?

  • To do it.

  • What abilities do you have?

  • And more importantly, what is your response?

  • I have a little assignment.

  • I want you to think about it.

  • I want you to go out,

  • I want you to find three people on Monday,

  • and I want you to get three people to believe in you.

  • On Friday, I want you to go out

  • and I want you to get three people

  • to believe in themselves.

  • I want you to ask yourself this question.

  • Did I feel more like the leader I want to be on Monday

  • or did I feel more like the leader I want to be on Friday?

  • Leaders do not get people to believe in them.

  • Leaders find ways to get people to believe in themselves.

  • This year, believe in somebody.

  • And my friends, how will these people pay you back

  • for all you've done for them?

  • I'll tell you how they will pay you back,

  • in ways that you cannot imagine.

  • (dramatic music)

- I was so scared.
