I grew up in New Orleans my mother worked as a daycare assistant at the Jewish Community Center the man that I was told was my father was a carpenter and a functional alcoholic he was abusive to my mother and I not more than a baby herself when she married this man she tried her best to protect me from him but with no life skills of her own she did what she knew how to do Friday was payday for him so he would come home happy but that was short-lived he would go out and return a few hours later drunk and angry yelling and fighting her as I look back over my life there were many people that had a hand in shining light into my darkness when I was growing up I had just started junior high school and in order for me to get to high school I had to walk through the drug dealers literally step over them and the drug addicts walked through a graveyard then the next block passed gang members and then go through the projects and then come to a six-lane intersection and it was always busy but just beyond that was the school well one day as I'm approaching this intersection I hear this voice saying will someone help me cross he was in a suit he had a cooler in hand and a folding lawn chair in one hand and his cane in the other will someone help me cross he said people kept ignore him walking past him with their busy lives we were poor but we were busy I don't know why poor people was so busy I said I'll help you in my 13 year old changing voice he said well thank you son may I have your shoulder I said yes sir he said don't trick me now I said no sir I won't we crossed the street I asked him where he was going he told me that he was going to to my school to sell praline candies to the kids so I helped him to the school and he said thank you and he told me that God would bless me for my kindness he and I became friends we took that walk every day I came out of school one afternoon and there he was sitting outside in that lawn chair selling praline candies 25 cents and I saw one of the kids tried to buy candy right and they gave mr. Butler a dollar and they told him it was five dollar bill I stepped in and I said mr. Butler this is a scam needless to say I had a lot of enemies at that school but it didn't matter I was glad to do it you see mr. Butler was one of the first men in my life to see me and what made it all the more special is that he was blind he was the point of life one morning I was late meeting him and as I walked up to the intersection I could see mr. Butler standing there not saying a word so I took tup behind him and I said I'm not gonna say anything I'm just gonna wait to see what happens he said I know you're there son I said yes sir I am I said I didn't hear you saying will someone help me cross he said no I was listening for you I said you were he said yes sometimes in life son when you pray and you said all you can say all you have to do is stand and wait listen what a point of light he was there are many people in this world that are watching waiting saying asking begging hoping will someone help me cross we all have the power boring life you
