Only In America


Published: February 2006

From orphan at age seven to a home that
seemed like Heaven.
Mama's life zoomed from a bottomless
hungry pit of despair, to a seemingly
warm sun drenched day in the midst of
a frigid winter storm.
Unconditional love gently molded and
shaped an unprotesting child; yielding
the exquisiteness of a refined lady.
young, eager, intelligent, and full
of love for all mankind.
What greater gift could Mama have
received when she finally emerged from
being orphaned to dining with a
president of these great United States?

Dedicated to my children Adrian, Yolanda, and L. Reginald.
