Middle Class American
I’m the embodiment of middle class America
“I got mine at vision works”.
The person depict in the image on page 440 does appear to be a middle class American from his dress he appears to have a regular office oriented 9 to 5 that probably is informal from the necklace that he wears and the headgear.
From his caption that he embodies middle class America upon looking at him that is what one sees. He’s clean shave has a crisp white shirt over what appears to be a suit jacket and seems serious about the work he is to perform.
Vision works has chosen him to do a commercial and I feel that he was a good choice from the manner in which he looks. His eye-wear forces one to look at his eyes and I feel that they were a good choice for him. They showcase his features in a good light the oval shape is very appealing on him. He does force one to put more effort into choosing eye wear as to choose something that highlights one’s features.

I used to be a gang member
I’m a formal gang-member that has become a teacher
Bandannas not just for gang-members
After observing the I used to be a gang member caption I see what are gang member attributes in this gentleman. Tattoos, bandanna on his head and his overall stance, gives the impression that he is a gang member.
After reading that he has now become a teacher I say wow people can reform and that was probably a good choice for him as he can detour some young adult from going down the same path. He can share with them insight that they would have not gotten otherwise had he not lived the tale. I think that was probably a excellent choice for him on his career path one where he can make the most impact.
Having a bandanna company come in and offer to pay him for a commercial is phenomenal he show cases how bandannas can be used by not only gang members but by others in their off time. They have a multi-purpose and cross all social economic lines.

I survived poverty
I had nothing but threw hard work, I turned it around.
Give to the united way so people like Carlton Davis can have a second chance.
After reading I survived poverty, this gentleman’s picture to me can be viewed as someone who has come threw poverty. His clothing doesn’t appear to be very expensive and he appears to be low key.
Upon reading how he turned it around I’m impressed with his due diligence and not giving up and knowing that there is always a better day and better times ahead. For the United Way to have chosen him as their spokes person is commendable as he impitizies an American coming threw on the other side of poverty. He shows his perseverance and committment to being and wanting a better life.
This is what hope looks like
America gave me a second chance
Hallmark has decided to use him along with several other father’s for their up coming Father’s day commercials.
After reading the caption what hope looks like, I can see hope beaming from this gentleman, he appears as easy and at peace.
After reading America gave me a second chance, I want to know more of his story because from that statement I gather that this gentleman has been threw some things which were probably difficult but he overcame them and came out on the other side.
I think it’s phenomenal that Hallmark has decided to use him as one of their spokes people, this was a campaign of which one had to be nominated and a two page essay had to be provided as to why you want to recommend this candidate. From this I gather he must be a pretty good father, despite any other challenges he may have encountered in his life and that is commendable.
These are the eyes of sadness
I’m bruised but not broken
After reading the caption the eyes of sadness, I see sadness in those eyes and wonder what story they have to tell. What troubles they have withstood and what pain has had to be washed from them.
After viewing the caption bruised but not broken, I’m further intrigued by what bruises he may have suffered and at the hands of whom. Family, friends, relatives etc.. Obviously from his quote it has been a difficult journey but he has managed to survive all of the turbulence.
The Southern Christian leadership group is putting together a few commercials and has chosen this Carlton Davis as one of the spokes people. The board was so moved by his story and all that he has been threw that they unanimously choose him. Wait until we see these commercials one could not help but be moved to be and do the best that they can.
