Just had to share this :

I am a 39 year old working mother of 3 boys, who just saw James’ story on NBC 30. It truly made me smile :-) One of the most inspiring stories I have heard in a long time !! I work as a Bilingual Teachers Assistant in New Britain CT, and we deal with many literacy issues everyday. I always preach to my students that its never too late to learn and am hoping to play this video for them later this week. I just sent this info to a friend who owns a bookstore as well, so she will be ordering books to sell(one is set aside for me) !!  I have linked this story on my Facebook wall to share with all my friends, who I hope will share with all theirs, and so on…and so on…
I also have always loved to write. It has been my passion my entire life.  My dream is to write a book(poetry mostly), but I have many other stories in the works. This story was just what I needed to kick myself into gear. I have said…someday I will be published; but just don’t know where to begin ! This has given me the inspiration to get the ball rolling !! I would love to pick the brain of someone who has done so already. Any ideas, suggestions etc. would be great ! James is truly an inspiration. May God continue to guide James and bless him even more !!

    Hi Marlisa –

    I just wanted to write and say what an inspiration James Henry is.

    What a survivor!

    I guess what touched me the most was the part that he sort of glossed over – the part where he was raised by an abusive alcoholic and held back and hampered in succeeding.

    What I wanted to say was that in addition to learning to read, he kept his heart open to love… that is awesome.

    God Bless!
