"You Can Do This" by Cherie Cox

teacher poet, her brother’s love rewarded

A distant cousin, whom the writer almost missed getting to meet, offered bold guidance from the heart and from a 100-years of life tapped out on an ancient Underwood.

Cherie Cox covered news for the Hickory Daily Record before she served as an assistant public defender in Charlotte, North Carolina. Her poetry placed first in the 2002 Charlotte Writers' Club's competition. Current published works include this essay, a short story, and several poems.
