After searching for him and how to get in contact with Mr. Overton, the stars aligned and the day came for us to meet. It was such a pleasure!! Mr. Overton was such a friendly, lively man and held great conversation. I had my 9 month old son with me and my husband to soak it all in. Mr. Overton's service to our country is remarkable and honorable. Such a delight and wonderful time that I had speaking with him.
This is what community is all about. When I drove up to his home I could tell the love that was on his street the way his community looks after him and shows that they care. About a year ago, he was almost going to have to move out of his home, but the community gathered money and fundraised for him to stay in his home and have a health care giver around the clock. This is community and that's why I love connecting the dots, telling others stories and being an advocate to teach, inspire and motivate others because with everyone's help we can do so much more.
