In 1998 a mother looses her battle with cancer, she has seven children all of which are grown and living there lives as we all do. At this mother's funeral service a minister begins what one might reconize as a alter call to the 600 people attending her service. After 30 minutes and not one person answering the call, suddenly one man stands to find christ and walks down to the mothers coffin touches it and the minister embraces the man, then he returns to his seat.
Six weeks later the young man who stood at this funeral got married on a beautiful saturday afternoon and left that night for a week long honeymoon. When this man return he was focus on fulling his life with all the blessing of becoming a married man. On the first monday morning back to work the man was outside supervising a project for his company here in Atlanta, suddenly a freak storm came over downtown and the newlywed husband was struck by a bolt of lightening and killed. After being married for only 8 days and standing before his family to find Christ his life was ended.
The mother was mine and the man who stood was my little brother, I'll never forget watching my brother stand at that funeral never. When this happened to our family it took our breathe away and we all searched to find our own way to heal from it. As a out of work General Contractor I began a journey to find my answers to why things like this happen. The results of my thoughts and notes scribbled down on 200 pages of a three year healing process as I walked in their graveyard have saved my life and are going to change the world in a new film script that has been written based on this Journal.
First Tuesday The Gift is a powerful new film heading towards a green light in Hollywood, the material has been signed by Morgan Freeman and Creative Artist Agency in Los Angeles. The story has been reconized by Oscar winning Icon's and will surely become a Blockbuster hit. Never under estimate the power of our lord to change one's sadness into something great for millions of people to feel.
