Makes me terribly ashamed of my selfishness. My body may be getting older (53) yet looking at this reminds me that my pains are but “a flicker” of others’.

This IS the same man who a short several months ago was featured in and AJC story on some makeover show and then was blasted to hell for his faith is it not?

You go Coach. I liked your character then and I like your character now. I would be proud if I had a boy and he played ball for you.

This series of trailers, and ultimately the movie, should be mandatory viewing for every group of young people. Jeremy Williams is demonstrating every day what is possible when one is infused with courage, possessed with unwavering faith and committed to making a difference in the lives of others.

Jeremy and Jenifer,

I think you are two of the bravest people it has ever been my pleasure to know. A movie would be a wonderful way for people to know your story. But other than that, I am pulling for you. I am praying for you. I cannot bear the way life sometimes deals with the BEST of people.I’ve had some things happen in my life and I looked to my Dad, who recently passed…he was a rock. He would get down on his knees and beg God to show mercy towards you both. And so will I. I still see your smile Jennifer. I still see your determination, Jeremy. You are going to beat this. Remember that.
My dad is in heaven, and I know he’s pulling for you…so are we ALL.
