Two Words Can Change a Life

Last week at the Kiwanis International Convention we heard from Sean and Leanne Tuohy, the real life couple featured in the movie The Blind Side.

Sharing the first time they saw Michael Oher, Sean Tuohy mentioned his wife said two words that changed their lives. They were driving down the road and saw Michael walking in the cold.

“Turn around.”

Two words and a life was changed. They had no idea at that point who he was, what was going to happen, anything. But something happened inside Leanne and she responded.

You never know what two words may do. Michael Oher was ignored for years by everyone in Memphis, TN. We pass people just like that in our own towns. A simple urging inside can bring change. You never know.
