Herchel Newman's story was included in the 101 stories chosen from 3,000 to be featured in Chicken Soup for the African-American Soul. Other contributors to the New York Times #1 Best Seller series, Chicken Soup for the African-American Soul include Yolanda King, Colin Powell, Martin Luther King Jr., Maya Angelou, Muhammad Ali, Bishop T. D. Jakes, and Aretha Franklin.
Herchel Newman dedicated the story to his #1 fan by saying:
"I dedicate the accomplishment of being included in this historic book to my wife, Sweet Lonnie. She overrode my doubt with, "Yes you can!" When I put writing down she picked it up, handed it to me and said, "You must not stop." When inspiration fell asleep in me, she woke it up. When I wasn't listening, she told me what God said. She is my inspiration. She is my help meet; God's expression of His love for me. She is a pruning tool in His hand to make me produce more fruit to His Glory.
Leondra, you are easy to love. Your encouragement and belief in me causes me to believe the words, "Yes,I can!" I'm joyful because God did not deny me the prize of your love."
Chicken Soup for the African-American Soul: Celebrating and Sharing Our Culture One Story at a Time, was released nationwide on September 25. The book is available here: http://tinyurl.com/3odso
