Tim Scott, an African-American US senator, and Trey Gowdy, a white US congressman, won’t allow racial lines to divide them. They work together, eat meals together, campaign together, and make decisions together. Yet in the fall of 2010 - as two brand-new members of the US House of Representatives - they did not even know each other. Their story as politicians and friends began the moment they met and is a model for others seeking true reconciliation.

Well, my awareness of Trey Gowdy's presence on the planet has been enriched. I now have an awareness of his friend Tim Scott who deserves my attention as well. I believe the South will solve the problem of racial inequality long before the North decides it is a worthwhile thing to do. The impact of the changes that have occurred and the fact that reconstruction is continued to be an ongoing work of art further convinces me that Tim and Trey are the two that will bring the issues of this delima to the forefront as they have together done in this book. I have heard their rhetorical thoughts and statements before. Like them I am a follower of God's teachings. The difference here is the message they are sending to us is coming from both of them at the same time and in a framework of friendship wrapped around it. Thank You for that. I would like to carry on a correspondence with both of them. Would you furnish me with there e-mail addresses please. tell them my copy of the book is headed for the Philippines to pastor Raymond Rabe of the Fourth Baptist School in Hilongos Lyte. You see he and I are friends much like Tim and Trey. With due respect; Wolfgang M. Schwartzenweintraub 16719770123 ( Island of Guam) wolfmannn2018@gmail.com

A moving and illuminating memoir about the life of world-famous author and historian Iris ChangIris Chang's best-selling book, The Rape of Nanking, forever changed the way we view the Second World War in Asia. It all began with a photo of a river choked with the bodies of hundreds of Chinese civilians that shock Iris to her core. Who were these people? Why had this happened and how could their story have been lost to history? She could not shake that image from her head.

The waste of human life value:
I have lost so many who walk off a pier only to find they needed more of it to finish what they had to leave the world. Death where is your victory in all of this. Why not give me some of your pain to carry Iris? I would have been a willing recipient. I will never be where you have been , although I may meet you when my journey ends. Only your journey has left me keenly aware of the dangers you faced with such courage. So much you have taken with you. Do we pick up the amulet and carry on? You left us too soon and I would want to follow you through the breach into battle by the inspiration you kindle. Will you offer me a hint as to where you were headed so I can defy the ignorance of the negative evil that abounds in this world. We as a nation defeated a fanaticism and sunk the chrysanthemum on many occasions . They paid a price at Nagasaki and Hiroshima. We all, in retrospect lost Iris, and now we have lost your precious life to give us cause to ask for justice. Thank you Iris.

During, and partly because of his suffering, Dr. Frankl developed a revolutionary approach to psychotherapy known as logotherapy. At the core of his theory is the belief that man's primary motivational force is his search for meaning.

…………………… As a future Counselor this knowledge and the future anticipated acquisition of Lager Therapy insight, I will become more sensitive to the needs of others. Because of the place I begin the journey to assist those returning from a 'War-Zone' in both Afghanistan and Iraq I discover through self reflection this will be my final attempt to help mankind return to normal.. We do not need to worry about imprisonment because the Talban behead their prisoners. I will be happy to receive a list and certainly promote more of Viktor Frankl my way.

In this poignant and disturbing memoir of lost innocence, coercion, survival, and healing, Dianne Lake chronicles her years with Charles Manson, revealing for the first time how she became the youngest member of his Family and offering new insights into one of the 20th century's most notorious criminals and life as one of his "girls". While much has been written about Charles Manson, this riveting account from an actual Family member is a chilling portrait that recreates in vivid detail one of the most horrifying chapters in modern American history.

I lived through the story of Charles Manson and the family. It was difficult to imagine that anything as horrific as this could have happened to so many people then and yet, not more did not parish at his hands. If you do not believe there is a God in this world, what were the odds of this lady surviving all that she did. God is good all the time and all the time God is good. (David White 2017 ). I am a survivor of the war in Europe and thought back many times myself how God watched over me and brought me to America. My life had some miraculous turns to it as well. May Charles Manson rest in peace and may he be forgiven for what he has done to some innocent young people. With all due respect; Wolfgang M. Schwartzenweintraub

On May 21, 2014, Admiral William H. McRaven addressed the graduating class of the University of Texas at Austin on their Commencement day. Taking inspiration from the university's slogan, "What starts here changes the world," he shared the 10 principles he learned during Navy Seal training that helped him overcome challenges not only in his training and long Naval career, but also throughout his life; and he explained how anyone can use these basic lessons to change themselves - and the world - for the better.

SEMPER FI To those that remember, I severed for many year and four and one half years in Vietnam as a airborne/reconnaissance Marine Corps Navy Corpsman. We were some of the best America had to offer. Many of Admiral Craven's ideas were taken from the USMC. Thank you for the reminders that came back to me in this book. It will certainly be a resource for me to reflect back on the rest of my life. With all due respect; Wolfgang M. Schwartzenweintraub USNH Ret.;

  • Narcissist and the Cognitive Dissonance Theory: The Web of Eternal Entanglement

This audiobook will seek to define cognitive dissonance as it relates to narcissists, toxic people, psychopaths, and other mentally ill or personality-disordered individuals. It will also define the cognitive dissonance that causes victims to stay with their narcissistic spouse or partner. The purpose of toxic and narcissistic people is seemingly to harm and take advantage of others. We look at them as being the "evil" side of humanity, but we often don't realize why they chose the "dark" side.

There seems to be a disconnect between the money that is spent and the knowledge taken away from the lecture. Do I feel knowledgeable? Maybe let me think about what just happened. When graduation comes about they will bestow upon my tired old bones a Masters of Counseling. Then my short career will entail pulling narcissist (very evil people) apart from their partners before one of them kills the other . You see, my self efficacy is very high it must be there. The attitude and the altitude of that attitude must be inspirational. I am so happy that some day there is going to be a PhD, behind my name.
With all good intention;
