Ted Williams' Sudden Twist of Fate

It began yesterday as a viral video. A homeless man along Ohio's I-71 who used to solicit change from drivers. A sudden and lucky twist of fate, he's today's most in-demand voice personality in the world.

Ted Williams' roadside sign for help:
I have a God-given gift of voice. I'm an ex-radio announcer who has fallen on hard times. Please! Any help will be greatfully appreciated. Thank you and God bless. Happy holidays!

Countless employment opportunities for radio stations, voiceover gigs and even the Cleveland Cavaliers were offered to Williams. A home, groceries, a car, a $15,000 and a $10,000 contracts were also offered to him.

People are naturally good. Hoping to help Williams get a break, some created a 'support page' at Facebook, and others threw videos at Youtube, had 6.2M views in 3 days.

We are all given big second chances in our lives. If we make mistakes, even serious ones, there is always another chance.

  1. Nice post. I believe in second chances. I saw Ted on YouTube. What an amazing voice. But what impressed me most was his intelligence, honestly, and humility. I hope he can turn his life around.

  2. Yes tama Te Pie. Mga ganyan lang kahaba na blog, pag sobrang haba kasi first time palang makita ng reader yung haba hindi na babasahin sa umpisa palang.
