Former inspirational poet now a church elder

Terry F. Newton says his life changed after 9/11

It was in 2001 that Terry Fernando Newton of Coconut Grove introduced himself to The Miami Times. He was a poet who promoted the unification of cultures and wanted to publish some of his healing, inspirational poetry. After the September 11, 2001 attack on the World Trade Center in New York, Newton sent a poem to a reporter in New York City and to Mayor Rudolph Giuliani.
