Does he have a talent of any kind? Probably not...

I think it was Andy Warhol who said we would all be famous for 15 minutes or something along those lines. YouTube pretty much guarantees it.

Here's hoping this guy seizes this opportunity. I'm sure the media will make sure we know if he does or not. Homeless yesterday, signing autographs today.

Only in America....or in whatever country YouTube is available.

You do what your mother taught you? Really, Ted? Did your mother teach you to break into cars, urinate in public and hang out with prostitutes?

Must you be so nasty? This is a wonderful, heartwrenching story but you, instead of feeling good that someone gets a second chance, have to act like the Grinch. Your negativism must be hard to live with, so why not let it go? Whatever he did in the past matters not; what he does now is more important.

When I first watched the video on You Tube on Tuesday, I stated, "God is awesome." He gave this man a golden voice. He went through his trials and tribulations and in his state of homelessness, someone took the time to read his sign on I76, listen to his voice, post it on the Internet and the rest is what we are reading and sharing in today. The most important thing of all, He gave God the glory. Some people who reach any fame in their life will say, the universe, and every other name in the world and will not give God the glory. For all the people who are homeless or discouraged, this is a message of hope for us to continue to walk by faith and don't give up. God is able of doing exceedingly abundantly more than we can ever ask or think and no matter what, Mr. Ted Williams of Brooklyn, New York is a living, walking, speaking testimony of Ephesians 3:20. The best is yet to come in 2011, if we believe. Praise the LORD!
