Poppy:A Story of Courage, Determination sand Faith

ByDr. Horace L. Stewart

Courage + Determination + Faith = Dreams Realized

Have you ever wanted something and all the cards seemed to be stacked against you? What if you were born at the wrong time, the wrong color, and on the wrong side of the tracks? But something inside of you knew you were destined for more than an average life. You wanted a life for yourself and your family that would positively impact generations to come. So you set aside fear and apprehension and courageously move toward your dream.

With sheer determination you start out. No matter how difficult or humbling the tasks you won’t give up, even though the circumstances dictate that you should. Now you are off and running so you think—but the next step runs you smack into a wall. Everything you worked for and dreamed of slips through your fingers. To add insult to injury; a series of events caused by your choices inadvertently leads to the death of your only son.

In order to bounce back from this last blow it takes something greater than yourself—it takes faith. You take that leap and start moving toward your dreams one more time. You know that you still have it in you to do something significant with your life. So you try again and this time your dreams are realized.

You are Never too Old or too Young to Dream

Poppy: A Story of Courage, Determination and Faith spans seven of the most difficult decades in American history and the life of Dr. Horace L. Stewart, one of eighteen black men specifically selected in the 1940s to integrate Air Force Basic Training. In his life he experienced segregation to integration, the Great Depression and World War II. Dr. Stewart self-described as a gangly dark skinned colored boy went from the cotton fields of central Texas, to high school dropout, to airman, to teacher, to doctorate in education which proves that anything is possible with courage, determination and faith.
