In life there are certain experiences that changes your outlook on things. You spend your whole life trying to perfect things, but life is full of many imperfections and these imperfections can ware on a person’s enigma. People who grow tired of their current predicament will sometimes go and search for a new beginning. Most every person deserve a second chance to start over and learn from their mistakes, but as the old saying goes history almost always repeats itself and people find themselves unable to make that change to a new life. It takes a strong individual to move on from their past mistakes, because it’s human nature to follow a certain routine and it’s supernatural to break that habit. In my book “Why Ruin Another Life” the main character Marva was prone to making mistakes and wasn’t good with judging certain situations. Her poor judgment causes her to lose something near and dear to her, but she is strong enough to move on and start over. It just goes to prove that when the goings get tough, the tough have to get going.
Anytime a person manages to forge through great peril, he or she has reason to feel great satisfaction. Anyone who has been in a difficult situation knows that it’s hard to maintain optimism when you are in the mist of fire. That silver lining they talk about seems like a fantasy, an impossible feat. Anyone who conveys to you that rainbows are made from the rain, you feel like seriously hurting.
Moreover I feel African-Americans should be very proud of themselves. They had to overcome great obstacles to get to where they are today, coming all the way from slavery to the President of the United States.
Ponder if you will once being considered just someone’s property with absolutely no control to being head of a state and having ultmate control. I think you would agree that it’s one of those life-changing events, an accomplishment in anyone’s book. It’s like a story taken from the Bible.
If I could witness one event in history, it would be the freeing of the Slaves. Anyone who has read my book Why Ruin Another Life knows that 99% of it takes place in the South and deals with issues prevalent to today’s South. My hope is that this book will open eyes and hearts and will induce one of those life-changing moments.
