by Coleman Taylor
Heroes come in all shapes and sizes, all colors, and from all different backgrounds. What defines a hero is not the number of trophies on a shelf, goals met, wealth attained, or power gained; rather, what makes a true hero a hero is best realized in those whose lives have been touched in a profound and unforgettable way.
Have you ever wondered why those idioms of yesteryear linger still? The answer: They speak of simple, basic truths. For Coleman Taylor, these simple, basic truths and the lessons he learned as a child, which carry him through to this day, are shared in this poignant walk down memory lane. It is on this journey that the invaluable gifts shared by those older and wiser are unwrapped.
