Subject: Re: "True Height" story
To: Becca Gillespy Hi Becca, My name is David Naster. I wrote the story "True Height." It is a fictional story I made up. I submitted it to Chicken soup for the soul. I never said it was a true story nor did they ever ask me if it was. I never pretended it to be a true story. I intended for it to just be a great heart-warming fictional story - which it is. I am not sure if Chicken Soup portrays the story as true. If they do, I was never asked. So there is the truth. Please enjoy the story as simply a story,
