The P.T. Barnum of the Barnum and Bailey Circus
by Joel Benton


This story contains similarities of two aspiring young men a century apart. They both had a dream for their lives and pursued that passion.  Their dreams became a reality in spite of the difficulties.  One introduced a famous singer to America, the other has introduced a son,. His father and mother hoping against hope, that he too will have a dream and turn it into reality. Lu Hickey
