There are some people that you "meet" in life who make you feel that you need to BELIEVE in hope. That people truly have resilience and the ability to do more good than harm. I learned that lesson over the years by listening to a young boy, Mattie Stepanek, as he seemed to exude such wisdom, well beyond his years. And quite frankly much more than most people would ever attain in a lifetime. His poetry, books and now legacy live on with his mom, Jeni Stepanek. Her book, MESSENGER, should be on the MUST READ list for all high school students. Right next to GIFTED HANDS by Ben Carson.
I think it is so ironic ( or is it?) that Jeni will talk about Mattie's quest to help spread the words of peace, hope, harmony, and more on the week that we celebrate the same sentiments from Martin Luther King, Jr.
Enjoy the photos and join me with welcoming Jeni Stepanek on the air this Wednesday, Jan. 20th at 9 a.m. EST. If you have questions for me to ask her please leave here as a comment. To listen to our interview tune in here: http://toginet.com/shows/learningandlaughterwithlouise
