“Hal Carter, there are many who suffer from adversity and injustice. When one of us rises above it, it inspires all of us. I read the ‘Free to Live’ story about you and write to thank you for sharing your story of overcoming adversity and injustice.  It takes courage to share it but your story has helped more people than you will ever know.”
