Your Story: Getting Home Again

Kenny and Jamie Deason wrote in with their contribution to our "Your Story" file. They had lived in San Francisco for a year, helping kids and scraping by on money they made from selling bicycles. They decided it was time to return to their hometown, Oklahoma City. With only a few possessions and $20 in cash, they began their journey from California to Oklahoma - on homemade bicycles. After a few grueling, exhausting days, Kenny's bike and most of their possessions were stolen. They were stranded. Kenny and Jamie talk to Dick Gordon about how they got home and the kindness they found in perfect strangers.
