Looking at the Stars by Lewis Hine is a honest, matter-of-fact account of his life so far which has made me smile, giggle at times and has also brought tears to my eyes. This young man is just amazing. What he has been through, and continues to go through, doesn’t seem to dampen his spirit at all. It just makes him all the more determined to live his life to the fullest extent possible and do whatever he can to make other disabled children’s lives better. (Check out his website, http://www.friendfinderofficial.com/ for more info.) I am in awe of him and his family. I am a mother of a seventeen year old son and a sixteen year old daughter and I can’t even imagine how Lewis’ mother must feel on a day to day basis. I know none of us knows what’s around the corner, but she must be terrified a lot of the time! She sounds like an amazing lady. It’s obvious how proud she is of Lewis though and I’m not at all surprised. He is an inspiration! I’m not surprised he’s attracted the attention of many a famous person either and it’s great to see so many people getting behind Lewis and supporting his charity. The prom Lewis, and his team, organised looked like a fantastic night and if you watch the video on the website you will see for yourself just how much it meant to those who attended. With so much hate in this world, stories like these restore my faith in humankind.
I have absolutely loved getting to know Lewis. He is someone I will be talking about often and for a long time to come.
I don’t know if you will read this review Lewis, but on the off chance you do, keep up the good work. You are awesome!
