"I Give Hope" By "Helping People"

"A living dream, continuing to be true and alive." In October 1982, in Freiburg, Germany, the U-Can! Man (Private John Wallace Isom Jr) was asked by the military Educational Advisor, "What is your life dream?" I remember saying, at the age of 18, "I want to help people." That dream was born in me before I joined the Army on May 10, 1982, and lived through me during my 25-plus year career that ended on December 1, 2007. My dream was consistent, no matter how I was (or wasn't) treated. Now, three years after my retirement, God is granting me the DESIRES of my heart (Psalm 37:4) and keeping the U-Can! Man's dream alive. The dream was and is simply this: "I want to help people." Now, what is your dream? Is it true and alive today? Do not let yourself get sidetracked. People may be depending on your dream coming alive and staying alive.
