"It's an absolutely humbling experience to have literally hundreds of people looking at you with their eyes telling a story of their own hopes and dreams.... There's a feeling that what you have attained for yourself--although only relatively short-lived, for a year--is a lifetime venture. It's a feeling of destiny." -- Laurel Lea Schaefer, Miss America 1972
