The message of this song has proved to be meaningful to a lot of people, touching many lives. We asked Michael
if there are any stories that have stuck with him as far as how it's inspired people? He replied: "Well, the one story I remember vividly, I could still go back to reading the letter, was some young girl, I think she was 18 or 19 years old, and had a horrific childhood in terms of abuse and that sort of thing. And she was suicidal. She gave me this whole story in a two page letter. She was driving down the freeway and listening to a pop radio station and heard 'Place In This World' and pulled over and began to weep. And had this encounter with God on the side of the interstate. And her life forever changed. And that's the one that I'll never forget. There's been plenty of people talk about 'A Place In This World' but that's the one letter that I'll never forget."
