“A story of talent, redemption and the power of the Internet” these are the words Matt Lauer used to describe the story of Ted Williams. Williams was just another beggar by the highway until a reporter read his sign and listened to him speak. He is on a whirlwind now. He has job offers from all over the world. He will get the opportunity to see his 92 year old mother who had not seen for over 10 years. Lauer said to Williams how did he maintain his “civility” despite his hard life. Williams said that he learned these lessons from his mother, but he also gave glory to God. He has learned to be grateful. Lastly, Williams said “don’t judge a book by a cover.” Words to live by.
