With all the acrimony about race flooding the news & internet, this should provide a much needed change in perspective.
He has parents who invested in developing the content of his character.
He found a company which also decided to invest in that character.
Mr. Parker is a hero!
Thanks for a heart warming story. This is the kind that should be shared with urban youngsters instead of diatribes about who’s keeping them down.
Awesome stuff, great post, thanks
Great that Richie has been able to become so productive.
I remember reading about a woman named Barbara Guerra who lost her arms in childhood in Houston when she grabbed the primary wires on a big transformer. She now lives in Austria, I believe, and operates a computer for a large design firm.
These people amaze me; I can’t imagine their perseverance.
Amazing young man. God bless him.
Never say never!!!
If you use Facebook you should also post the vida there. I just added it to my wall. Hope a lot of people will see it.
Obama would want him on welfare.
