Format: Paperback
I met Johnny at a NY State Division for Youth residential center near Plattsburgh NY. I was a fairly new foster parent, in the process of meeting my third foster son. Johnny was a skinny, blonde kid with an impish smile - and a challenge. Our first visit almost ended in disaster; he spent one night of a weekend and needed to return to the center. I thought this was the end, but we tried again and he slowly developed the trust and confidence in me. A few months later he become my foster son. We shared almost two years together, during which I battled cancer and was forced to leave the Air Force and relocate to the Albany NY area. Our life together was mostly good; however, the demons from his earlier life created such barriers to bonding that in the end we decided that a two-parent family could better meet his needs, much to our mutual pain. Johnny's story is one of courage and hope. It is a story for today and for each new today to come. It defines the hope and vitality of the human spirit, and is a lesson for us all. I am proud and humbled that this man still calls me "Dad."

Johnny,

As you know, I recently purchased several of your books.
Getting your books was a matter of choice.
I had chosen to get to know this author who has moved me so with his writings of life.

The amazing part of getting your books is that many never personally get to know the author, only of what they read.
I, on the other hand, have been blessed.
Though we have never met in person, I have had the pleasure of e-mails and personal phone calls from you.
We have shared our lives with one another through the phone calls and the e-mails.

I am still amazed to this very day, I ask, why me?
Then I need only remember your words, Why not you?
I need only believe in myself, words that I know are true.

No one else matters right now, it's all about me, I need only depend on one.
That is what you tell me.

Silent for far too long.
That is also what you told me.
You had so much to tell but knew not of how.
Your silence had to be broken somehow.
The right set of ears to hear and the strength to let the tears flow, steps that you took slowly, steps that would only help you to grow.

Today, you are no longer silent and today you are living-proof, we can take our lives back.
Amazingly enough taking and using our pain for our gains, you say is the key to taking our lives back.

Johnny, the more I get to know you, I have not a doubt that you know what you are talking about and writing about.

Johnny, your books, done your way; you would not have them done any other way.

By Holly G on December 4, 2007
Format: Paperback
The latest book from Johnny Cash Eaton is a very emotional collection of poetry and the author's personal memoirs. Most of the writing was done by Johnny himself, while there's also a plentitude of contributions by Johnny's friends and family. Rarely does a man open up his heart for all the world to see, as Johnny does. His writing is honest and frank, and his words are memorable. His life story is painful to read about, but it MUST be read, because it demonstrates how the human soul can survive and triumph, even after being exposed to the worst abuse and cruelty. The kind words and praise expressed by others in this book reveal that there are a lot of folks in this world who are very proud of Johnny. I guarantee that after reading this book cover to cover, you'll never complain about YOUR life again. Kudos to Johnny Cash Eaton for beating some incredible odds.
