I received an e-mail yesterday from Jim Convey, the man who owns one of the Eagles busses featured in THE SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK movie. He's a big fan of TSLP book, which is cool enough. But he also sent me this photo of his beloved Birdswagon 2 as he left it set up the day David O. Russell used it as a movie prop.
Just when I thought the e-mail couldn't get any better, I opened the link he included. That took me to ESPN, where I learned about Jim's son, Jamie--a ten-year-old kid diagnosed with cerebral palsy--and his young career as a Philly sports commentator.
You want to watch this short video clip. You want to read this article. You will be inspired. I promise. These men are heroes.
I'm continually amazed by how many connections I make through writing. There's a lot of good out there.
And words save.
