October 4, 2019

We are all someone to someone. By that, I mean we have people who influence us, mentor us, lead us, and, sometimes, keep us in check.
I remember a man named Merlee. Mr. Merlee. If I try really hard, I might remember his last name. But we all called him Mr. Merlee. First name basis. With that fine dash of Southern respect. Mr.
By remembering him, I realize how he impacted my younger self. So, the question is who am I influencing?

We are all someone to someone.
