Michael McColly is a teacher of ESL and creative writing in Chicago. For the past year, he has been interviewing people living and working with HIV/AIDS, particularly activists and doctors, both in Asia and in Chicago neighborhoods. He is currently traveling in West Africa and looking for a publisher for a travel narrative about his trips to various countries affected by HIV/AIDS. About his essay in this issue, he writes, “I wrote this piece for my father, who made his career not in baseball, but as a coach and a teacher. He has allowed me to share such a personal story about us because he hopes that it may inspire other parents and children to make that trip down the long road of forgiveness.”
