The kids at school call me “Freddy Krueger.”
And they ask me about my “Nightmare on Elm Street.”
As I talked with Louie I remembered some of the awful Freddy Krueger theme song.
“One, two, Freddy’s coming for you
Three, four, better lock the door
Five, six, grab your crucifix
Seven, eight, gonna stay up late
Nine, ten, never sleep again.”
“Everybody’s got scars,” Louie said with tears. “I still got a heart!”
He told me how great it was being with Terry.
“Watching him use humor the way he does really helped me out!
Now I’m always crackin’ jokes with the kids around me, and they are so shocked and can’t believe I can do this!”
“Sometimes I tell them ‘I got attacked by a shark with laser beams.’
I make ’em laugh! I say, ‘Hey guys! I’m medium-rare and you’re raw!”
Louie is my friend and he’s in my Hero Hall-of-Fame.
I see courage every time I see him.
