“God Is In This Movement.”

Tonight I was very blessed to attend a private reception with Mr. Herman Cain, keynote speaker for tomorrow’s “Defending The American Dream Summit,” hosted by American’s For Prosperity – Arkansas.

Mr. Cain visited with us individually before making some comments & hosting Q&A.  Below are some of my tweets from tonight, featuring some of his best quotes from his speech [in reverse chronological order].

Herman Cain grew up in a low-income family, living in a south Georgia duplex.  He & his brother slept on cots in the kitchen.  His father was a barber, janitor, & chauffeur, working all three jobs just to get by.  Cain cites his dad’s work ethic & determination as a driving force behind his own success.  “My dad had two goals in life.  The first goal was to own a house.  The second goal was for me to be the CEO in the back of his limousine.”   Herman went on to be CEO of Godfather’s Pizza & Burger King.  He also served as Vice President of Pillsbury.

Cain says the only thing he has failed at in life is retirement–he’s failed three times.  After leaving the business world briefly, Cain is now a popular conservative talk-show host.  According to his comments tonight, he is considering a run for the White House in 2012.

One of the most moving stories that Mr. Cain shared tonight is featured here in this video.  One week ago tonight, Mr. Cain was in Douglas County, Georgia speaking at a TEA Party rally.  Lewis had the last question of the night:

Cain’s story and comments tonight are too inspiring & frankly too powerful to be fully conveyed through an article.  He’s a real example of the American Dream and we are honored to have him in Little Rock with us this weekend.

I will be tweeting my thumbs off from the Summit all day tomorrow.  Follow me at twitter.com/NicholasHHorton for live updates.
