His story has blown up on the internet, YouTube views have hit the thousands and news organizations have scrambled to get an interviews for their morning shows. The Cleveland Cavaliers have already given him a job offer, the NFL is in pursuit, as have radio networks around the country. Williams told the CBS Early Show, "It's sensational for one thing; overwhelming for another ... It's just amazing," and then went on to say he's been able to reunite with his mother and that, "One of my biggest prayers that I sent out was that she would live long enough for me to see me rebound or whatever, and I guess God kept her around and kept my pipes around to maybe just have one more shot that I would be able to say, 'Mom, I did do it before, ... I might pass away before her or whatever. My dad didn't get a chance to see this. But God is good."
This is an inspiring story for the start of 2011. Sometimes people just need a little helping hand. One can only wish the best for Mr. Williams, and hope that more people like reporter Kevin Joy take a little bit of time out of their day to potentially turn a life around.
