This is about a young boy growing up during the Depression under horrible conditions and his struggle for survival. How he turned this around and became a productive adult.
I grew up during the Depression and my home life was not an easy one. I had to become self-reliant at a very young age in order to survive the diversities that were handed to me. I was considered "Peck's Bad Boy" but through some very good friends and learning how to trust people, I turned that around, had a very productive military career in the Air Force, was a scanner for the Air Rescue Service for the Air Force, was a very good recruiter and could sell the Air Force because of how they helped me. I became a wonderful husband and father to a very lovely young child and made sure that she had a much better life than I had. I wanted to convey to mis-treated, underprivileged children that you can overcome diversities and become a productive adult with the help of good friends and eventually trusting in the Lord.
