David Poole's Influence

I read a very moving tribute to David Poole written by a young man whom Poole took under his wing and helped along in his career.  How David Poole Changed a Young Sportswriter's Life.

Sam Bundy was a young boy struggling because his parent's personal problems were overflowing and affecting their children.   He says, 

"Here's the truth: Without David Poole, there's a pretty good chance my life would not have turned out as fruitful as it has.

I have a wonderful wife I've been married to for 15 years. We have a wonderful son, a sweet little Lhasa Apso and a nice home. It's my American Dream come true, really, and it can all be traced back to David."

Poole gave this young man opportunites that Bundy followed. He was a sports writer for the Gaston Gazette and is now the sports editor at the Morning News in Florence, SC.

Reading this article shows how just how much the little actions in life can be a blessing and a help to others.
