There is nothing I admire more than the desire to make a difference, to do some good, to help someone else, to offer hope.
Tracy Woodall is doing that. Tracy is the founder of the Brent Woodall Foundation for Exceptional Children. This foundation offers care and education to autistic children and their parents.
Tracy was 5 weeks pregnatnt when she lost her husband Brent in the attach on 9/11/01. She has chosen to add light back to this world and make a difference. In doing so she has shared the legacy of her husband Brent, and given joy and hope to families with autistic children.
From the outset, Tracy and her foundation have been doing just that. Changing lives and sharing hope.
In Tracy's words:
"With the grief, it was all very black. I couldn't see any future," Mrs. Woodall says. "But right then, I knew I could no longer be an angry, sad person. I had to do whatever I had to do to be happy again."
And she finds that happiness in helping others.
I'd like to introduce you to Tracy Woodall and The Brent Woodall Foundation For Exceptional Children. Go to Strengthen The Good, read, and donate a dollar or two if this touches you.
