In Response To: B.Smith of Florida *PIC* ()
Uncle B. Smith, a former civil war slave..As I look at his picture, it looks like he's looking back at me saying, 'here I am, I made it through'! He looks like he has a story to tell. The gray in his hair looks like strenght, his cane looks like 'proud', and his hat and suit look like 'grace.' He's sitting there, looking at me saying, 'I have a story to tell and you have been chosen to tell it. I have come this far by faith and it's that same faith thats going to let you tell my story.' 'When you reach a stumbling block, dont give up. If I had given up because of all the blocks I've hit in my life time, you would be doing something else today. So, I set out..to tell Uncle B. Smiths story, with his picture beside me always.
