Time Magazine year-end lists.

A few people have now sent me a link to Time Magazine’s lists of the year – “The Top Ten Of Everything 2008”. They have a “Top-Ten Oddball News Stories”, and I am amazed and proud to be on the list at number 10:

I disagree with Time magazine on this one. In fact I don’t find anything about your story to be oddball at all.

I suppose it is good for publicity and stuff, but I find your story simply inspiring. I’ve followed this from the beginning, and It always gives me hope to have seen you pursue your dreams.

I agree with Skip to a point, but Time was definitely right to put you on a Top 10 list! “Top 10 Human Interest Stories” would be more accurate. But your response, “amazed and proud,” shows again why you are succeeding with your goals: You look for the positive in every experience. You are, as always, an inspiration indeed!
