Lessons I Learned from April

Derek, May 2010

This past weekend my brother Derek came to Cincinnati for a visit. While here he found an old essay he wrote for a college class in 1998. With his permission I’m posting it for you to read.  

What I find most special about this paper is the last paragraph. Derek writes, 

“April is still young and learning how to read, and she may never read any of this, but I want everyone to know how great it is to have her in my life.” 

Well, this weekend April read his paper – all by herself. It was truly special milestone for both of them. 

Thank you Derek for allowing me to share this with so many. I love you and am proud of who you are too.
