Most people do not take advantage of their God given life and live it to the fullest. Gumersindo Vidot is living for the second time. What an emotional tale of triumph and obstacles inevitable for a child raised by the streets. A story fueled with passion, failure and drug abuse. Gumersindo chronicles are one of redemption. Where it is written in stone that youth never make it to see the greener grass, Gumersindo through his sheer will power and a dream crossed over to a second life. He exchanged his gangster ways, and went from a street thug to the American Dream. This book is a must read. Gumersindo is proof that children all over the world through hard work, perseverance and desire can do anything their hearts desire! The beautiful, talented, intelligent author Freeda George Foreman Your book should be turned into a screen play. That should be your next mission... From that man tossing the shoe shinning box that your father mad you into the street, to the ghetto vacations on the subway, to you getting burned in the building, getting rid of those mobsters invading your streets, running away from reformatory school... to the beautiful 19 year old stalker coming in your life (smile) - Each story was a movie scene, and I enjoyed reading the journey!!!!
