I would like to give Jesus (God) thanks for the platforms God has placed me on these last few weeks as an author. He allowed me to speak at the Shelby County Public Library. One child, with his parent, happened to show up, and this opportunity allowed me to connect me back to my love for teaching. I will definitely make a Read-A-Loud of Nikki's World: the Dog Walk with Whitey when I have the opportunity. He then allowed through my mother, Diane, and long-time friend (Frances Jackson) an opportunity to speak at the Memorial Day Convocation in front of the Shelby County Court House. I will be sharing those poems on Youtube.
