What ever brought Michael Boatwright to what he encounters now, those who know this man - if actually with empathy and compassion - should be standing right beside him, as well as, ALL of those American citizens who benefit from U.S.A. Veterans. Lest us not forget that it is due to those who have served the once fine, respectable and caring country of the United States of America, that we enjoy an existence that many seek.
To Michelle Brewer, Michael Boatwright's sister, if you are involved with children, yet can turn your back on your own, then people should actually question if you are fit to be part of the teaching cycle of children. Simply put, what could you actually be teaching children about empathy, compassion and actually caring about each other?

When Boatwright awoke in the hospital, he insisted he had lost his memory and forgotten how to speak English. He was soon diagnosed with dissociative amnesia, which is a form of spontaneous memory loss without injury or illness. He had remained at the hospital ever since, penniless and uninsured, absorbing hospital resources.
