INSPIRING STORY

Hi Everyone,

As I watch one of the last Oprah Shows, a story came on that inspired me. It is the story of George Dawson, a 98 year old man, who was determined to learn how to read. Here is a link to his story...

Incidentally, George died at age 103. But, he wrote a book 2 years after he learned to read. Plus, went on to receive TWO Honorary DOCTORATE Degrees....Life is so good.
