Memoirs of a Runaway
Not too long ago I heard her say, "I never met a drug I didn't like." Even if she lives through everything that she's doing to herself and her loved ones, what will her consequences be in the end? I heard that this same young lady has been running away from home, having sex with multiple partners, has been into very heavy drugs and other criminal activities. Since her parents, police and court systems have done the best they could to intervene, they will now have to sit idly by and just hope for the best. She was so sweet, so young, so innocent. How did this happen? She's only thirteen. I wish I couldn't relate... but I can.
Michael Kennon is the CEO and President of Kennon Transport, LLC, a successful trucking business he runs with his wife of 13 years, Sue. Before owning his own company, Mike was a runaway and was virtually homeless for most of his childhood and young adulthood. To survive on the road, Mike drove trucks, sold encyclopedias, hustled pool, was a baker, ski instructor, sous chef, drug dealer just to name a few. Drugs and other dependencies took over Mike's life to the point that he could not accept help when it was offered, nor could he stop running away from a past that haunted him. While now blessed with what he has achieved in his life and in his personal and family relationships, things were much different at one time. "Memoirs of a Runaway: A Story of Hope" is a tale of survival and spirituality. Isolation and reconnection. Most of all, it is a hand reaching out to those who travel down the same troubled path; a story of hope.
