“’A Boy Named Morris’ was written by the author at the age of ten. The story was inspired by a boy in the author’s fourth grade class. Every afternoon on the way home from school, Morris sees a homeless man in the park with torn clothes and a sad dirty face. He feels bad for the homeless man and asks his parents what he can do to help the man. His parents inform him there was nothing he can do because the homeless man is an adult and has to help himself. This saddens him. He wishes for a way to help the man. Then one day, he has the chance to help the man. Later that day, Morris is rushed to the hospital. He had been sick for a long time. While at the hospital, he has a visit from the homeless man, who he takes him to his heavenly reward. This story relates to all religions and cultures, A true story of pure love and human kindness.
“’Maggie’s Carnival of Dreams’ is inspired by the author’s experiences as a child. The story tells of children with various disabilities sitting in a dirty old park, imagining and dreaming of going to a carnival to ride upon the amusement rides. The children are told by their caregiver that they are ‘not normal children’ and will never be able to ride upon amusement rides. This hurts and saddens the children, so they create a carnival of their minds where they can ride upon the rides and where their disabilities can’t stop them. As years go by and the children grow into their adult years, Maggie remembers the hurt of being called ‘not normal’ and makes their dreams come true. Maggie makes the dream carnival reality. The carnival is designed for children with disabilities—because all children are normal.”
