December Prayer by Mattie J.T. Stepanek shared by musician Nile Rodgers for a global peace activity by the Mattie J.T. Stepanek Foundation.
Jimmy Carter called Mattie J.T. Stepanek “the most remarkable person” he has ever known. A congressional resolution was passed in his honor after he died, and a flag was flown over the US Capitol to honor his great contributions to society. All this, and more, in honor of a child who died just before his 14th birthday due to a rare neuromuscular disease, but who left a legacy that continues to grow and inspire people. A legacy of hope and peace, guided by a simple, clear, and achievable message rooted in personal choices.
