What an awesome feel good book!
I wish Mr. Dawson could have adopted me...LOL (Although I think my parents did a great job). He just is someone I would have loved to know)
I love the articles/news reels at the beginning of the chapters, referencing points in history (Mr. Dawson's 100+ yrs of life)!

"Things will be all right. People need to hear that. Life is good, just as it is. There isn't anything I would change about my life." This is the overarching theme throughout George Dawson's autobiography.

2 other things that really stand out to me...

When George's teacher, Mr. Henry said that George teaches THEM. His work ethic, his positive attitude, etc.

When George referred to children nowadays (and in reference to the Columbine shooting)...
he said that some parents GROW their children, they dont RAISE them.
I truly believe this statement!

I will definetly pick up a copy of this book to keep, and even though I dont read a book twice..this is one that I would read again and recommend to everyone.
