About Herman Cain: My Story
“I was raised in Atlanta, Georgia by loving and hardworking parents. We grew up poor, but we grew up happy. Things weren't always easy, but my mom and dad knew that if they kept their faith in God, faith in themselves and their faith in the greatest country in the world, they, too, could achieve their American Dream.”
About: Charles Harvey: My Story
“I was born in Oceanside California, after my mother went in labor at the Del Mar Race track, I was told Grandpa drove her to hospital where I was born. Yes I have my Birth Certificate. Then he went back to the track because he won. It was a long shot like myself.
Mother gave me the first name Charles, because Grandpa wanted me name after his best friend, a bookie in Watsonville, California. I came from serious alcoholic family that included grandpa, Mother and my father I never saw what my father looked like until I found his brother 40 years later, when they gave me pictures that included a sister I did not know I had. We both were abandoned, When I found her she contracted MS at age 27 and died in her bed in her 60s. Thank God my brother-in-law was a good husband, but always someone has it tougher than us, He lost my Sister and the same year within months lost a daughter to cancer and contracted Parkinson disease I had no dreams or hopes because I was raised in lots of foster homes, Salvation Army and Boys Republic, In chino California experienced. ever sexual abuse, physical and psychological abuse. But God helped me survive it. But then the Genetic alcoholic gene that ran rampant through my entire family history on both side of the families, the Millers and the Harvey's.
