If you've heard me tell my story, then you have heard me talk about Sharaud Moore, Mr. 450 referrals himself. You could always hear him before you saw him. Yeah, that guy. The one who didn't know how to whisper. If it had not been for Sharaud Moore, you would have probably never heard of Freedom Writers, because he was the catalyst for some major events that took place in our classroom. Well, he joined me at my speaking engagement today, and boy, was he a hit! The people were blown away by meeting him. He is now a teacher, a track coach, in law school, and is doing amazing things for kids in the city of Long Beach. We've come a LONG way, and it brings JOY to my heart to see my brother winning at life.
