Life is So Good
I liked this book, it was an interesting to read about Dawson's experience growing up in America. His point of view was unique as he talked about racism and segregation, and encounters he had with both. He is also a very optimistic man and he states a belief in simplicity that has kept him alive and healthy for so long- with an emphasis on not worrying so much:
"Things will be all right. People need to hear that. Life is good, just as it is. There isn't anything I would change about my life. Be happy for what you have. Help somebody instead of worrying. It will make a person feel better. Even the poorest man can take the time to say hello; that can be a help."
