Be The People by Carol M Swain,PhD
Carol has divided this book into two parts.
Broken Vows: Forsaking What We Once Knew.
Banished Virtues: Reclaiming Truth And Justice In Policy Choices.
After each chapter Action Points are available to use for further reading and study. I love the fact that Carol has included The Ten Commandments, The Declaration of Independence, The Bill of Rights, and The Constitution of The United States of America (1787) in her appendix. These documents need to be read and understood by all Americans.
Here is a small glimpse into why Carol would write this book in her own words…
I have always had a deep love for my country. As one of twelve children living in rural South in a four-room shack with no running water, I experienced poverty and racism. Yet even when I was a high school drop-out and teenage mother, I still trusted in the American Dream. I believed I could make a better life for my family, so I worked hard, got my GED, and not only put myself through college but earned five graduate degrees and went on to have a successful career in academia. I have seen life in America from the bottom, from the middle, and from the top. Through my experiences I have learned something about what works and what doesn’t.
Now is the time for us to stand up and … Be The People.
I am happy to give this book a five star rating.
