James Spann Releases Details of His New Book ‘Weathering Life’
"This is my father. I don’t have kind words to say like most of the posts you are seeing on Facebook this morning; he abandoned me and my mom when I was 7 years old. No visits, not a penny of child support. But, in an odd way, good things came through the very hard times."
This was the opening of a Facebook post where the Southeast's favorite meteorologist invited fans to a book signing for his autobiography.
Just that much revelation hints at a good read, full of emotions. It seems that when successful people expose their scars or the trials they overcame to reach their full potential, it makes them a bit less idolized and more so relative, which transforms idolization to appreciation.
