From The Boy on Cinnamon Street
Sometimes amazing things happen to people and nobody knows about it. Nobody knows or cares. Some day many years from now in the faraway future, I will look back and say, "That year when I was in 7th grade, I knew a boy named Henderson Elliot and what he did for me was extraordinary and who he was and how he won my heart was nothing short of incredible."
