Re: JW Harper and The Ghost Inside my Child - one of my favorite shows. I remember this episode well. A young boy living in Missouri, began at an early age drawing pictures (stick figures) of 'men' shooting at each other. As he got older his drawings became more sophisticated. When questioned b by his parents the meaning of his pictures, he revealed to them that he remembers being a soldier and fighting in a war in a place called Spring Hill, TN where he was shot and killed at the age of 19. His parents were shocked but didn't want to 'pooh-pooh' him. After years of listening to his stories about the war, his parents figures this needed to be put to rest, one way or another. The three of them took a trip to Spring Hill. Visiting the battlefield, the boy pointed out to his parents the spot where he was shot and killed. At that time he said his name was 'Jonathan Walter'. They visited the local library and searched historical records of the battle looking for a 'Jonathan Walter', finding nothing. The boy was in despair. "But it's true - I know what happened - I was there". After thinking for a few more minutes, he said "Harper!" - look for the name 'Harper". They searched and found a "Jonathan Walter Harper"! Quite a story!! How can one NOT believe this actually happened - that this boy was the re-incarnated JW Harper????
