If you have experience the loss of a child then you know of the pain. If you are looking for solace I hope this sharing will help. If you are looking for spiritual insight, you should read a different book. This is not it. When I first began writing this little book, it was to be a condemnation of the trucking industry, complete with a lot of facts and figures and graphs. Every year, some 5000 Americans are killed on our highways by tractor trailers, but this is not the focus of my writing. The trucking industry is a large, nasty and powerful force in our nation. It has power for the stuff of science fiction novels. But many businesses in America have such power. The American economy is a great thing, but all things must have a vulnerability to answer to the public. Franklin Roosevelt warned that the liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than their democratic State itself. That, in its essence is Fascism, ownership of government by an individual by a group, or any controlling private power. I ask that you understand that the chronology may seem to jump around a bit, but it is how I feel. This book is many things. It is a commentary on social difficulties from the perspective of an African-American male. It is a healing. It is also a vehicle in which our daughter will continue to live. It is recorded family history. It is my hope that this small writing and sharing will bring enlightenment to some and help in some way to those unfortunate enough to have forced upon them the burden of losing a child.
