#GoodNews: What a Difference a Day Makes!!

This morning, when I tweeted a link to the above viral video that had been going around for only one day, I never, ever expected to be posting this blog right now. In less than 24 hours, a man by the name of Ted Williams was homeless and pan-handling for over a decade on Ohio 1-71 but had a “God-given Gift of Voice”. A Columbus Dispatch reporter recorded a video of him speaking in that voice and within 24 hours, the man had not only a cell phone, a hair cut, solid career offers (even THIS ONE with the Cleveland Cavaliers), a home, etc but also the opportunity to be reconnected with his mother who he hasn’t saw in YEARS. The most beautiful part is not only the miracle itself but his undying faith in God and love for his family. This is TRULY inspiring!

    TSA stopped Ted Williams from getting on his flight from Columbus to NYC. No appearance on “The Today Show” on Thursday morning. No visit to 92 year-old Mom in Brooklyn. See, he didn’t have ‘proper ID’, said the TSA. So Ted spent today at the Columbus Courthouse, trying to figure out how to get a copy of his birth certificate. Obviously he did have some form of ID, but the TSA wasn’t satisfied with it. OK – What are we going to do about this out-of-control phony security dance? These blockheads, however, are typical of our society. Follow the little rule book, and throw common sense out the window. Wrong. No little rule book takes away YOUR OBLIGATION TO THINK FOR YOURSELF. There are times you have to make an exception. That’s “the exception that proves the rule”. It’s like the traffic cop giving the mother of the little girl in a coma in Las Vegas a ‘jaywalking ticket’ – gave it to her right in the hospital. Or the policeman giving a ticket to the Dad who raced to the hospital while his wife’s water broke in the car on the way to the hospital in New Hampshire. RETRAIN EVERYBODY — OR FIRE THEM.

    Absolutely fabulous!! I saw Ted’s story on Today and was floored at how quickly life can change. Pray everything turns out well for him. It’s inspiring, yes? Now, if only I could win the lotto lol….
