Opinion: Panorama article about Richardson shows hard work leads to success


In the Panorama section of the Dec. 14-15 Sumter Item is a wonderful article!

Ms. Cynthia Richardson's life story relates a determined woman who overcame the many obstacles which life placed in her path. It is a wonderful, enlightening tale of how she overcame the many trials which could have had a negative outcome rather than the positive result she has shown.

She has some really good and loving grandparents to take her and her siblings in and "raise them right" as we old Southerners say.

Ms. Richardson can be, and is, an inspiration to all who may find themselves in similar circumstances.

She is a model for how determination and hard work can lead to success.
