I have traveled all over United States and met a lot of people in fifty years who have given their take on events to cause the things that are occurring now. I am a graduate of the school of hard knocks, also a four-year university. I have come to understand that our country started down that road of violence, death, and destruction during that horrible war in Vietnam, in which I lost a lot of friends. The violence, death, and destruction exploded in our countrys cities after the deaths of Dr. King and Robert Kennedy, two men of peace who wanted to stop the war, killings, and violence. In my book, I attempt to give an idea of the effect that the continuing war on cities is having on us left here in the inner cities. And is now beginning to spread to the schools, suburbs, and towns throughout America. The innocents are the ones getting caught up and who now are saying enough is enough.
