Information on Writing/Encouragement

Here is more about Ron from his family: "From a very young age, Ronald knew that he wanted to help people and to make a difference in the world. He chose to pursue a career in law enforcement where he could help those incarcerated turn their lives around. Each day when he came home from work, his four-year-old neighbor would be outside watching. Ronald had become a hero to the boy. One day, Ronald walked next door to talk with the boy. Ronald learned that the boy too wanted to become a police officer. Ronald told the young boy, “You will be a great officer. You can do good in your community by helping others and you will be able to influence people for good.” The young boy tried on Ronald’s shirt and beamed with pride. This is the R. McAbee we know. Ronald has always looked to help others. Many awards would follow in his career, including a life-saving award that hangs on his wall. He had saved the life of one of the incarcerated. As many people will tell you who know Ronald, “He would give you the shirt off his back. He is so selfless and puts others before himself. He has such a big heart and is passionate about the things he loves.” This is the R. McAbee we know."
