   Kokomo Tribune (Newspaper) - May 8, 1994, Kokomo, Indiana                                My Feet Were KfflingM Until I Discovered the Miracle in Germany It was the European trip we had always dreamed about We had the time and money to go where we what we wanted But I soon learned that money and time dont mean much when your feet hurt too much to walk After a few days of sightseeing my feet were killing me Oh my wife tried to keep me going In Paris I limped through Notre Dame and along the ChampsElysees And I went up in the Eiffel Tower although I cant honestly say I remember the view My feet were so tired and sore my whole body ached While everybody else was having a great time I was in my hotel room I didnt even feel like sitting in sidewalk cafe The whole trip was like that until I got to Hamburg Germany There by accident I happened to hear about an exciting breakthrough for anyone who suffers from sore aching feet and legs This wonderful invention was a custom formed foot support called Flexible Foot Supports When I got a pair and slipped them into my shoes my pain disappeared almost instantly The flexible shock absorbing support they gave my feet was like cradling them on a cush ion of air I could walk stand even run The relief was truly a miracle And just one pair was all I needed I learned my wife also can wear them even in sandals and open backed shoes Theyre practically invisible Imagine how dumbfounded I was to discover that these miraculous devices were sold only in Europe Right then I decided that I should bring my discovery to America Made For Your Foot Alone In the last 20 years over a half million people of all ages many with foot problems far more severe than minehave experienced this blessed relief for themselves Heres why Feathersprings work for them and why they can work for you These supports are like nothing youve ever seen before They are custom formed and made for your feet alone Unlike conventional devices they

details Name any Wright children get together that we do not laugh about and reminisce about our parents I make few important de cisions without asking what Mama or Daddy would think and I celebrate no important family occasion without feel ing their presence They never left us children in death Mamas faithfulness willingness to sacrifice for her children love for her grandchildren and other peoples chil dren and commitment to service as the rent we pay for living bolsters my spir it and guides my way every day And I am struggling mightily to pass on her values and strength and faith to my three sons I hope to grow with my children as she grew with me and let them go as she let me go where need calls and talent leads While she did not always understand my choices she respected them and let me live my hopes and dreams rather than hers When I got a scholarship to study my junior year in Europe and wanted to vis it the Soviet Union with a student group my scrimping and saving could not pro vide all the money I needed She produced the difference by selling I learned many years later one of the small pieces of prop erty my father had left her for rainy days When I called my senior year in college to tell her I planned to protest segregation in Atlanta and probably would be arrest ed she said after expressing concern for my safety that she would be praying for me A few months later when I told her I was going to law school and did not plan to settle down with a nice young man and have children right away she sent me along my new way with her blessing She was very proud when I graduated from Yale Law School but perplexed and worried when I moved to Mississippi upon graduation in 1964 But she visited me and carried on her onewoman mis sion of service to her children grand children foster children and extended family of community children for whom she felt personally responsible in our small South Carolina town of Bennettsville When I informed her I planned to marry a man who was neither black nor Chris dan she asked if I had thought carefully about what this might mean Then she warmly welcomed him into our family I feel I am the luckiest child in the have had a mother and father who lived rather than just preached their faith and family who taught their children that being hon est was more important than being hon ored and that faith was a safer and more enduring harbor than fame They did not care about status they cared about serv ice They did not care about things they cared about thinking and thoughtfulness They taught us good manners to stand up when older or disabled persons entered a room to address adults with respect to work before play to take re sponsibility for our actions and to stay away from complainers and big talkers but small doers They stressed the im portance of reading and also what was worth reading They valued education for its own sake but valued it more as a means to helping others 06 Marian Wright Edelman is the
