    I Got Fired Today

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     nehpeebles said he was inspired by longtime iReporter JamesAmerson to tell Betsy Badwater's story.


    'Watching her live her daily life, I see her struggle and commitment to her family, but her talent makes me and a lot of other people [...] want to tell the world her story,' he said. 'We think it's valuable.'
