Noah waited 120 years before the predicted rains arrived. Abraham waited 25 years for a promised son. Joseph waited 14 years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit.  

She had waited each day for the last 6 years in this room to meet him for ten minutes. She would not come back tomorrow. It was his last day here and she expected him to come out soon. But he did not come.  His incarceration was extended.

Next day she was back in her seat waiting to meet him for ten minutes.

I love arguments
