with Polio at age 3. He spent most of his younger years in a children’s hospital in Memphis, Tenn. HThere he leaned to play the guitar and began writing music. From there he wrote one of the most popular songs of a century. “Singing the Blues”.
The inspiration this man gives to the world is undescriable. He was bold, strong, and stubborn. He was my dad. I played basketball because he couldn’t run. I wanted to as perfect as I could be, because he could only do so much. He never looked for pity and never felt he was any different than anyone else in the world. He was a man who couldn’t walk with the strength of an Olympian.
I am so blessed to be his child. I am writing a book about his life. I hope he will be as much an inspiration in your life as he has been in mine.
