Description

For those of us who sometimes feel that the light at the end of the tunnel really IS an oncoming train, J.T. Blakemore is living proof that we don't have to simply stand on the tracks and be run down. This is the story of a man who faces down a great deal of adversity and lives to tell the tale. In 1963, J.T. took an Ill-advised ride in a '59 Hot Rod Chevy and regained consciousness 28 days later. He was twenty-one years old. "You might say I threw my life away for a dozen cans of beer. My bell was rung really well, and I've had one gigantic hangover ever since. The prognosis was simple: brain damage. The effects were not so simple. Not by a long shot." J.T.'s past provides him with the tools he needs to meet the challenge of learning to walk, talk, and see all over again. The product of a tempestuous couple who met and married on the same day, J.T.'s often humorous journey from orphanage to U.S. Marines and beyond teaches him that adversity is a fact of life. His unflinching description of his ongoing recovery and his unique insights into the thought processes of someone with "drain bamage" will be uncharted territory for most readers, but it's well worth the trip. In spite of his many obstacles, this consummate storyteller is one of the most positive, enthusiastic men you will ever meet. "Damage to my big USMC pride would be an ongoing occurence. On mor ethan one occasion I have found myself, for no apparent reason, sitting squarely on my posterior. But I have learned two positive things about falling. First: getting back on my feet has become easier with every fall. Second: living with embarrassment won't kill you." His believe in "patient, prayerful, persistent perseverance" and anunflappable faith in God have served him well during his unusual journey. He has gone on to earn several college degrees, meet and marry his wife, and raise two equally strong and determined children. At first glance, you might think he's just an average guy. Until
