It's ALL about Making a Difference

John Wayne "Jack" Schlatter wrote The Simple Gesture for Chicken Soup For The Soul Vol.1 in 1993. You might like to know the whole story...
 
The two boys met in 1973 at Oak Jr. High where Jack was teaching.  They remained very close friends and were the best man in each others weddings.  When Jack met them they were his students, they became his friends and eventually the three of them grew into a brotherhood ....Jack spoke at both of their weddings. One is a minister and the other is a highly successful businessman.  They have come through many storms and their friendship has helped them sail to safe ports... Fast forward to 2011, when Mary Robinson Reynolds finally found Jack after several years of searching for him with the intention to put his collection of stories into flash movies. Together, as seasoned, successful educators, they have Teamed Up with movies, mini-posters, books and workshops to Make A World of Difference with what they know is possible within every one of us.
