The Grandson of a Slave Shares Life Stories and Personal Philosophy. . . Robert Sammons knows what it's like to have family history. His grandfather fought in the Civil War, and lost a leg at Gettysburg. Fifteen years after he came home, Sammons' father was born. Looking back at his genealogy and at his own life, Sammons was inspired to write down stories from his life and from his ancestors' lives, and to ask some of the big questions about why people cling to religion, what it means to think independently, how people can learn to question the precepts they've always been taught, and how to set meaningful life goals. In writing about his life, Sammons realized how often people just do as they're told, following blindly in the footsteps of their parents and grandparents. Let his insights and anecdotes inspire and enlighten you-and find out...are you one of God's stupid fools?
