Lesley Stahl: I know a psychiatrist who says the most important question she asks somebody is, “When you were growing up, who loved you?” Do you have an answer?
Matthew Burke: That’s very difficult to answer– who loved me– because there’s different types of love.
Lesley Stahl: Uncondition. I mean–
Matthew Burke: Yeah, unconditional–
Lesley Stahl: That’s what I mean.
Matthew Burke: I’ve never– I’ve never experienced that.
Lesley Stahl: So you– you have no answer for that question.
Matthew Burke: I have no answer. To this day I have no answer to that.
~ Lesley Stahl, Alive and Kickin’, 60 Minutes
If you missed last night’s episode of 60 Minutes, you can find it here at CBS: Alive and Kickin’. There are many great human interest stories in this segment but I was particularly moved by Matthew Burke’s story (which comes on at 11 min 45 sec of this video). He was abandoned two and half weeks after birth in a hallway. Mother and Father unknown.
