I wanted to share a story from my childhood that has really played a crucial part in why I do what I do. Way back when…in the 70’s…a man visited my elementary school in Duncanville, Texas. He was a musician who had composed a fun new song about Christmas. He sang the tune and even brought 45rpm records that the students could buy. Thankfully, I was one of the ones that purchased his record. It was single sided and lacked any fancy graphics or powerful marketing campaign. Just a man with a vision and a song to share. I would also venture to say he had a love for children and their imaginations.
The Christmas song he wrote has never left my memory and the joy I had listening to it in my room on my kiddie record player has never left my heart. Call me sentimental…yes, please do…call me sentimental but that simple event and others like it forever changed my life. That’s why this “grown up” spends so much time and invests so much energy into the hearts and imaginations of todays kids!
Well, that is a brief glimpse into why I do what I do…
Help build dreams and spark imaginations in todays younger generations! ( Hmmm, I like the sound of that!)
Thank you for sharing my walk down memory lane, your friend,
