Willing to Engage is a prequel to A Diamond on the Wall, the memoir of my experiences in Vietnam. It is my fervent hope, that by telling the remainder of my story, I might somehow stop someone from pulling the trigger of a gun, or swallowing pills, in their desire to end their life, or the lives of others.
Too many people are surrendering all hope, because they see no future, or because they consider themselves "hopeless losers", caught up in horrible circumstances, with no out but death. I also hope to motivate today's youth to become involved; to labor with all who are willing to put forth an effort to stop the insanity that is causing such dismay (politically and socially).
Together, we can make great strides, but we must be willing to engage in order to accomplish the much needed results. Furthermore, this book is a wake-up-call for the personal involvement and participation of every citizen, to set aright the deplorable condition of today's world.
