    A few years ago the parents of a friend of mine were given the heartbreaking news that their son, Greg, was going blind, and that nothing could be done.

    That’s exactly why I wanted to become a journalist, too, way back when I was five years old. At that age, I was reading dozens of books a week, and while others were playing outside, I was observing and literally taking notes.
    Perhaps I was always meant to have this title: I am now the editor of your local news source, the Henry County Local.
