the world’s citizens. A political leader, torn between upholding the way of life he’s sworn to protect and doing what he knows will lead to lasting change. And a man nearing the fi nal days of his life, surrounded by people who care for him and love him, but are guarding a long-held secret.And when all the stories come together and the pieces fi t into place, the future might look a little brighter, a bit more optimistic, and worldviews might just change.The book also dives into challenging subjects — politics, the environment, health care, among others — with surprising insight and intriguing perspectives and ideas.
