A lecture on John Calvin reminds a young student of her friend's uncle's story about coming back from the Vietnam War. She feels compelled to share the story with the class, struggling half-way through to make it seem relevant. After a few minutes, she realizes she can't salvage it and timidly sits down. Regardless, everyone is amazed. Her professor pats her on the back and tells her she did a good job. The other students raise her on their shoulders, parading her through campus. When the chancellor gets wind of what happened, he makes her the school mascot and commissions a costume to be made in her likeness.
