Dave - Good morning, Forrest! Thank you for taking the time for this interview.
Forrest - Thank you! You seem like a nice man.
Dave - America is in chaos Forrest. What do you think about that?
Forrest - You have to do the best with what God gave you.
Dave - Could you say more about it?
Forrest - Life is like a box of chocolates; you never know what you're going to get.
Dave - Any thoughts about Trump's attempt to overthrow our democracy?
Forrest - My Mama always said you got to put the past behind you, before you can move on.
Dave - Do you think there's any hope for our country ever becoming united again?
Forrest - Miracles happen every day. Some people don't think so, but they do every day.
Dave - Will this nation return to normal after Trump and his minions are held accountable for their coup attempt?
Forrest - What's normal, anyways?
Dave - What do you think about QAnon?
Forrest - Stupid is as stupid does.
Dave - Do we all have a destiny?
Forrest - I don't know if we each have a destiny, or if we're all just floating around accidental, like on a breeze. But I think maybe it's both. Maybe both are happening at the same time.
Dave - What do you think about people who are lucky?
Forrest - Now, Mama said there's only so much fortune a person really needs... and the rest is just for showing off.
Dave - Well, our times up. I sure appreciate your willingness to share your wisdom with us Forrest.
Forrest - That's all I got to say about that. Now I'm going to go for a run in my magic shoes. They can take me anywhere.
