By now you must have heard of Ted Williams, the so called “golden-voiced homeless man” who in the span of a week went from living in a makeshift tent to being interviewed on the Today Show and being offered jobs with Kraft Foods and the Cleveland Cavaliers. Even 6,000 miles away here in Amman, Jordan I heard about Ted’s story thanks to viral video and social networking sites. The world is truly a small place these days.
This story struck a chord with me, as I spent 4 years working closely, through a community-based non-profit organization, with those struggling with homelessness and poverty. I recently had the honor of writing a couple of guest posts on my thoughts on the Ted Williams’ story over at my friend David’s blog, Signs of Life. If you are interested in what I had to say please click the links below.
While you are over there, take a look at some of David’s previous posts. I’m sure you will find something worth your while. He’s definitely worth an add to your favorite RSS feed reader.
