In the book, Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul II (no it is not a recipe book. It is a book full of various inspirational stories), I read a story called "Hero of the 'Hood". It was amazing and unbelievable. I couldn't believe that such atrocity could happen in this world.
I wish I could tell Mike what an inspiration he is.
Please read the story here:

"(Mike Powell won the America’s Award in 1998, a national award known as “The Nobel Prize for Goodness.” No one could have deserved it more.)" - From Paula Mcdonald's website. Paula Mcdonald is the one who interviewed Mike and wrote down his story for all to read.

Yes, it is a true story. I just... can't believe it
