She Gave Denzel Washington His First Library Card. Then He Surprises Her On 99th Birthday

It was Miss Connie’s long time wish to meet a boy she taught how to love literature, and who has since become this huge Hollywood star. Actors meet thousands of people every year and most of them would just ignore requests like this, but Denzel is a class act and I admire him even more for making one old lady this happy.
