Great story, indeed! It is engaging content and you inspired me. I am glad I found this.
Look forward to part 2, and how he deals with his past, specifically with the situation that landed him in prison, including the loss of life he referenced.
Love Troy’s story (albeit just Part 1…)! A beautiful example of Romans 12:2. Looking forward to Part 2!
Having taught 5th grade briefly in south central LA following the Watts Riots (the Draft and Vietnam soon removed me from those duties), I am grateful for Troy’s courage but also for his obvious intelligence. Age promotion policy of LA Unified put non-readers into my classroom. Hard to reach them at that late point with a class of 30 students. They needed one-on-one tutoring. Troy obviously picked some foundational tools – maybe that grandmother helped! Looking forward to Part II.
When will Part 2 be published? I’m looking forward to it.
Hello Marilyn; so glad you’re looking forward to Part 2 of the Troy interview. It’s our intention to have it posted by the end of the month. (And best to Jeff). –David
so brave, humble, honest, willing.
he inspires me to do better.
So inspiring, and can’t wait for part 2!
What a great story! God is surely blessing him, and others whose lives he touches.
