    “I just watched this on TVO and was so moved I wanted to find out where Isaiah is from. I was saddened deeply. I really wish the best for this family and hope for Isaiah that one day all his dreams come true! Politicians should be ashamed. Our tax dollars are squandered when we have people in such great need in our own backyard.” — MGee, 17 Aug 2014
