Anthony Green, a man who has been an inspiration to the many people whose lives he has touched, has completed his new book “Pick Up Your Own Damn Crutch!”: a gripping and potent account of one man as he dealt with the challenges, mental and physical, that life gave him along the way.

Green writes, “Hi, readers. I am Tony ‘the Tiger’ Green. I have written this book, Pick Up Your Own Damn Crutch, for several reasons. It helps me work out mentally, the trials I have been through, allowing me to put in perspective regarding my life. There have been many good times in my life, and humorous times. I also hope my story will help others deal with their life trials, whether it is surgery/pain, mental illness/depression, or relationship/loneliness. I have always said, ‘Everyone is different, but we all have our strengths’.

Respecting yourself is very important. Life can be more joyous if you respect others for who they are and care for their needs. This will always make you feel better about yourself.

I believe God, our Creator, put each one of us here to write our own story. We are here in this wonderful world God had given us. We need to appreciate all and take care of the gifts that we have family, friends, and our environment and help lift those who are less fortunate.

You might wonder how I named this book. It starts with a trip to McDonald’s with Mom and her best friend Lani Collins. I was 7 years old. Mom and Papa were always telling me to be careful and take care of my things. They would say don’t depend on someone to help you!

They were a lot of old people who were there eating too and they kept watching us. When we were eating, Mom told me again to be careful with my crutches and don’t let them fall. After we ate and it was time to go, Mom told me again to get my crutches. When Mom and Lani reached the door, they looked back to make sure I was coming. As they looked, I dropped my crutches and said ‘Mom’! She yelled loud and everyone heard her say ‘Pick Up Your Own Damn Crutch!’ All the people were shocked and Lani ran out the door because she was embarrassed. Ha ha ha! It has always been one of my favorite stories. I laugh about all the time with my family.”
