About the Author
De'Ante Webster was deeply moved when his mother, Ieshia Webster. told him about Hurricane Katrina. She had gone to college at Grambling State University in Louisiana. When his third grade teacher in Indiana gave the class an assignment to write an historical fiction story, he chose Hurricane Katrina. He made up a character to be treasured and a vision of what it took to heal the damage - Kindness. De'Ante worked with the illustrator for 6 years before bringing it to the world. At 13, he will be doing a book tour around Indiana, his home town, in 2017 and hopes to travel to New Orleans with his book. His aspiration is to write books, run as fast as he can in track and inspire kindness. The illustrator and editor of the book, Laurie Marshall, met De'Ante's grandmother in 1964 at a Quaker workcamp. This project grew out of a 50 year friendship between families. Laurie is a professional artist and educator who is dedicated to partnering the genius of young people to help heal the world. Her work has been exhibited at the UN, the U.S. Senate, the U.S. Botanical Gardens, NASA, the Army Corps of Engineers and the Department of Interior. As a certified art teacher, her arts integration and project-based learning book, "Beating the Odds Now" is used around the world.

My advance copy arrived a few days ago. As I look through it I am again amazed that the heart of a 8-year old birthed this story. It is beautiful. The best of human nature. Young De’Ante has found a way to see sadness through his heart and is an inspiration to adults as well as children. Did I weep? Yes, I did. A lot. Some of the weeping was for the horrors of natural disasters. Most of the weeping was for the beauty in love.
