Comedy writer James Breakwell touched everyone’s soul recently, but not with a joke

He decided to thank a complete stranger after he “got far enough to fulfill a silent promise”

Dear Chris,

You’re probably confused right now. You received a book you didn’t order on a topic you don’t care about by an author you don’t recognize. Let me explain.
Many years ago, I gave a speech at my high school graduation. You weren’t there to see me – you were there for your daughter, who was in my class – but you politely listened to me talk anyway instead of getting up to go to the bathroom or faking a heart attack.
Later, you asked me for a signed copy of the speech. When I asked why, you said you thought I would be something someday.
You might not remember making that request. In fact, I’m sure you don’t. And if I asked you where that signed copy of my speech is today, you’d give me the same answer I give when my kids ask what happened to their old artwork that used to be on the fridge.
But what matters is that for a brief moment a long time ago, you believed in me. You were the first person to ever ask for my autograph. I silently vowed then and there that when I wrote a book, I would give you the first signed copy.
It took a while. A very long while. Actually, let’s not dwell on how long it took. This is supposed to be an uplifting letter, not a depressing one. But fourteen years and two failed careers later, I finally found a publisher who believed in me as much as you did.
This is that signed book. I’d love to tell you I became a success like you predicted, but the truth is this modest book might be as far as I ever make it. But at least I got far enough to fulfill a silent promise you didn’t even know about, and to me, that means everything in the world.
Thanks for believing in me before anyone else did. Sorry it didn’t earn you a better book.
Sincerely,
James Breakwell
