Kindness, Close Calls and the Magic of Making Wishes Come True
- #18401 in Biography & Memoir
The story drops into Frank's sad and difficult childhood - a childhood that was not his, but the byproduct of his mother’s whims. Constantly on the move and frequently hungry and homeless, doing without was the norm. Along his journey, glimmers of kindness from strangers were extended from communities he landed in - a meal or shelter when there was neither in sight. Each of these moments of generosity laid the path for Frank to walk and to choose a life of giving - to his country and then his community. His choices eventually led to several brushes with death and a chance meeting with a dying child - all of which answered a question we all face. Why am I here? About the Author: Frank continues to carry the torch of giving back, traveling the world speaking about philanthropy and social responsibility, "Everyone Can Be A Hero". He resides in Prescott, Arizona with the love of his life, Kitty.
