Description

In this inspiring memoir, "an unfailing champion for all children . . . shares his ever- committed life story . . . What an example he is for all of us" (Marian Wright Edelman, President of the Children's Defense Fund). After spending three decades in journalism as a newspaper reporter, editor and publisher, Dave Lawrence dedicated his life to a new mission: making sure every child has a real chance to succeed. A prominent advocate for children across the country, David helped found The Children's Movement of Florida, an organization that launched in 2010 with the purpose of making Florida's children, especially in their early years, the top priority for state investment. In A Dedicated Life, David tells his story from his time at the Detroit Free Press and the Miami Herald to his "retirement" at fifty-six, when he transitioned into his new calling and began making significant strides in Florida's pre-K programs, parent skill-building, and so much more. "This special book is the story of a good man who has lived an impressive, fascinating, full life dedicated to his family, his profession, his faith and his service to others, especially the youngest and most vulnerable among us." —Jeb Bush, Florida's 43rd Governor "[A] highly principled man applying his talents and values in a transitioning America." —Bob Graham, Florida's 38th Governor and former Senator
