I’m writing a book about a boy I know: a friend’s son. As I’m writing, I’m talking to others who know him too. What I’ve come to realize is the power of one. This one little boy has brought much joy into so many lives and has an incredible knack of bringing out the best in others.
Harold Kushner said, “Do things for people not because of who they are or what they do in return, but because of who you are.” That’s Ben. No judgement or motives. Only kindness and compassion.
In a world that sometimes feels riddled with sadness, we can take a lesson from Ben and spread ripples of joy.
The power of one.

Yes!! That is my boy Ben!! Sending love to him and his wonderful parents.
I love getting these updates and getting a peek into your world and enjoy hearing what you’re writing about! Is your book about Ben a picture book?
This one is actually a book for adults entitled Lessons from Ben: On Life… On Love… On Inclusion. Think Tuesdays with Morrie as a comp.
