Mr. Bodley, I just wanted to let you know how thankful I am for your efforts here in the Walker County schools. You spoke to both my son and my oldest daughter at Farmstead School in Jasper. They both were very impressed with what you spoke about and were eager to talk to me about it. My husband and I have always been very open with our children about sex and its' consequences, but having someone other than us speak to them about it was wonderful. I knew you had made a huge impression on my 12 year old son when he came home and was adamant that he get your book! While he is an A/ B student, reading is definitely NOT something he volunteers for. I have to say that I am also anxious to read your book as both of them were so impressed with you. Again, I thank you for your work and I hope you continue! Sincerely, Dawn Freeman
