This book follows the life, experiences, and Christian Faith of a young boy born in Asia Minor in 1908; how he and his family managed to escape the Genocide of the Greek and Armenian Christians at the hands of Kemal Ataturk on September 13, 1922; their lives as refugees of genocide; how these events and events of World War II on the Island of Crete Greece affected them and their descendants; and the relationship between that boy, in his adult years, and his son, the author. The book deals with life's storms that the boy and his son experience how their Faith, in particularly as practiced in their everyday lives, effected, and straighten them so that they could move through the storms of life and emerge from the eye of those storms, remaining strong and committed in their Faith. There is a strake comparison of life under the oppression of Muslim radicals seeking to eliminate Christianity; life under the control of the Nazi and Gestapo tyranny; and life under the Constitution of the United States where we are guaranteed freedom of religion, speech, choice, and the other rights granted Citizens of these United States of America. The author warns future generations do not overlook the price paid for these freedoms; and that, if ignored, the suppression, tyranny and genocide that was suffered by our forefathers, which still exists in other parts of the world, can be experienced again by us, even here, in the United States of America.
