A Lesson in Kibbud Eim

אברמי-מצלמה 041 (2) (2)I once had the zechus of picking up Rav Twersky at the airport.  Upon coming out to the arrivals hall, he looked for me and made his way towards where I was waiting.  Before anything else, he asked me to please wait a minute before we leave, and proceeded to  walk off to the side.  He then took out a cellphone and made a phone call.  “Hi Ma;” I heard him say, “how are you?  Baruch Hashem, I made it okay.”
