About Theodore A Henning II

My heart goes out to people with maladies of the spirit and mind. Their pain goes unnoticed in our world of iPhones, Apps and pads. I have been humbled, having lived with the poorest of the poor. And I have never met a rich man who didn't need Jesus. Such moves me. Everyone needs to express themselves, if for nothing more than to banter to the void. We get to, you know, 'cause we're barely above the animals. Some are better at it than others. I don't try to be profound in my writing. Simplicity holds a key. So, rather than plunder the depths of wisdom and insight, I write of that which inspires me. May there always be greatness in the person next to me.
