‘Bread and Gravy’ By Kevin Ahern

Bread and Gravy tells my story of being a teenager growing up in a poor family in rural Illinois. We had to subsist on bread and gravy when times were tough, but through a poignant life lesson, I learned what it meant to be loved and to appreciate everything I had, including bread and gravy.
