the book chronicles the beginnings of a friendship between a homeless black man, denver moore, and a reluctant white man, ron hall. hall's wife, deborah, was the instigator in bringing these two men together to form what would later become a lifelong friendship. at one point in the book, i verbally sobbed. there, i admitted it. now go read it for yourself and find out why.
the reason i'm blogging about it now, 4 years after i read it, is that denver passed away at the beginning of april. in recent years, denver and ron have traveled the country sharing their story of love, acceptance, and embracing differences only to discover just how similar we all are.
the picture below links to a great article about denver's life and the legacy he leaves behind. it's not very long, so i encourage you to read it.
