In November 1968 Hattie T and I were married. Shortly after the 1968 riots in December we found our non-profit organization Kids In Trouble, Inc and the rest is Christmas toy party and community history. When we embarked on my first radio sports talk show in 1971 as a host, it was Hattie T who came up with the title for the show, Inside Sports. In 1972 she had brain surgery and God brought her throught. Instead of retiring from the DC school system on disability, she taught her self how to write left handed and returned to the classroom one year later.
November 30, 2013 marked our 45th wedding anniversary and December 2013 marked our 45th anniversary of Christmas toy parties for needy children. KIT coordinated and hosted its first toy party in 1968 and everyone else in DC followed our lead including the NBA, NFL, NHL and Major League Baseball. I promised Hattie T 2013 would be our last KIT Toy Party for needy children. As promised, I walked away.

Hattie has taught in both the DC Public and Prince George's County school systems. As a teacher and community activist she has touched thousands of young people in the DC metropolitan area. Her father, Dr. Charles H. Thomas Jr. is an iconic civil rights leader who marched with Dr. Martin Luther King. He found and started voter registration in the state of South Carolina in the late 50s. Dr. Thomas was inducted into The Black South Carolina Hall of Fame in 2006. The Thomas Family is The First Family of Civil Rights in Orangeburg, South Carolina.
This week instead of hosting a Christmas toy party for needy children or preparing for her siblings to arrive from all points south for the Christmas holidays, she will be preparing to undergo surgery at the Washington Hospital Center.
For the past month she has been experiencing pain in her back and shoulder that ocassionally moves to her chest. On Thursday December 10, 2014 we decided to go to the ER of the Washington Hospital Center. For the past 10 days the doctors and staff of the hospital have administered every test imaginable and have not been able to locate the problem.
On Tuesday December 23, 2014 or no later then Christmas eve December 24th Hattie will undergo the last remaining option to try to locate the problem for all the pain, surgery. The reason for this open letter to Santa Claus aka God is because I believe in a higher power. We believe Santa Claus is God in disguise. I am living proof.
For example; for forty-five years Hattie T and I have brought smiles to the faces of thousands of needy children without grants or loans. This week we are hoping that Santa Claus will return the favor to a lady who for the past forty-six years has inspired me to be all that I can be---Hattie T. In her space, she has never met anyone who was not a friend.
I hope you now understand why the only thing I want for Christmas---is my wife, Hattie T. She has truly been The Wind Beneaght My Wings.
I have broken bread with some the greatest athletes, entertainers, and politicians during my life time and my wife is the greatest human being I have ever known.
