All the stories contained within are based on true events. I have even used the actual words spoken at dramatic moments. All these stories I have seen evolve personally or have had related to me by acquaintances or friends who have lived them.
I have tried to portray, through men’s and women’s eyes, the courage and overcoming against particular conflicts and problems big and small.These people, I hold to be the true grit of society, be they right or wrong, at least they try, and sometimes succeed ! May they never be discounted nor defeated even though they be forgotten.
“And I ponder why it is always encouraged:
That we pluck the prettiest flowers
And leave the weeds to flourish!”
