Ray’s Story ~ David Archuleta – A Ray of Hope

Not good at this but here goes. My history is that I am married 50 years with the same women with two children, a girl and a boy. In my teens my family owned a hotel in the Adirondacks in upstate New York. I was the bartender. We catered to the Hollywood celebs such as Dean, Frank,Van Johnson, etc. I  found out they are just people like everyone else, got drunk and fell down and threw up like normal people would do. Therefore I never had a need to follow any of them. Could not have cared less.

Fast forward to January 2008. I was diagnosed with cancer, the very aggressive type. I was given a choice of surgery or radiation. I decided to take the radiation treatment. I was sitting at home feeling sorry for myself. I was flicking through the channels, when I see this funny looking kid singing “Waiting On The World To Change”. (There I said it, funny looking LOL). This got my attention! What is this? Next he was singing “Heaven” OOOOHHH! What a voice! Then comes this real young-looking kid who is talking and said, What a feelin’!” Now I am thinking, who is this? I see him the next week when he comes out singing “Shop Around”. He looks into the camera with those eyes and I get this strange feeling in my stomach. I hear a voice say, “Follow me!”

WHAT!!!!

I rewind the show to see if that was what I really heard (can do that with my DVR). No, it wasn’t there. Watched the rest of the show, then I did go vote once. I couldn’t get him out of my head. The next morning I got up early to go get treatment. Amazingly, this kid and his songs were still in my head. It was a good distraction that made the embarrassing treatment go by very fast. WOW! I couldn’t wait for that night to see more. He brought tears to my eyes singing Imagine. The 30 days of treatment went by really fast. Each week, I was waiting to see what was next for this kid. I found iTunes and downloaded his songs to play on the way to treatment and back. Honestly, I wore out two phone’s redial buttons voting for him. The  rest is history. Why did this young man affect me in such a way? I am not gay. I felt like I loved him like a grandson. I do not have a grandson. He has brought me back to God and to music with a new meaning. Why? Because I feel I was chosen to support him. I really can’t explain it.
