Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: From Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist David Wood, a battlefield view of moral injury, the signature wound of America's 21st century wars. Most Americans are now familiar with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and its prevalence among troops. In this groundbreaking new book, David Wood examines the far more pervasive yet less understood experience of those we send to war: moral injury, the violation of our fundamental values of right and wrong that so often occurs in the impossible moral dilemmas of modern conflict. Featuring portraits of combat veterans and leading mental health researchers, along with Wood's personal observations of war and the young Americans deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan, What Have We Done offers an unflinching look at war and those who volunteer for it: the thrill and pride of service and, too often, the scars of moral injury. Impeccably researched and deeply personal, What Have We Done is a compassionate, finely drawn study of modern war and those caught up in it. It is a call to acknowledge our newest generation of veterans by listening intently to them and absorbing their stories; and, as new wars approach, to ponder the inevitable human costs of putting American "boots on the ground."

No matter how lost one may seem, God is still there, extending an invitation of love and compassion, mercy and peace to every person. There is nothing we can do to stop His love from coming, no sin to commit that is too heinous that He will not be there.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The word Holocaust, to many people, brings images of concentration camps. Indeed much has been written and documented about those brutal places. Less documented however, are the thousands of Jews who escaped the death camps and hid from Nazi tormentors in the hills, riverbanks, sheds, sewers and holes they dug in the earth of forests. They were forced to seek help from people they hoped would not betray them. In Poland, well known for its fierce anti-Semitism even before Hitlers rhetoric, many Jews sentenced themselves to death by believing they could trust their neighbors, friends or even strangers. David Symchowicz, born in Krakow, Poland, had traveled to Berlin and other European cities during these turbulent times. He understood from scenes in those conurbations that the train of virulent hatred was speeding eastward. Determined to keep his family together, David, his wife Hela and his daughter, Hania hid in a lean-to for two and a half years. This book tells of their harrowing existence, deprivations and dangers and of the courage and peril faced by the people who hid them. Of course, anti-Semitism, hammered into the soul for so long cannot be turned off like a stream of water from a faucet. After the war, the Symchowicz family tried to start anew in a small Polish town only to be saved again from a pogrom that killed dozens of Jewish families. They made their way to a Displaced Person camp and eventually to America.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Heart-breaking, hopeful and horrifying, I Shall Not Hate is a Palestinian doctor's inspiring account of his extraordinary life, growing up in poverty but determined to treat his patients in Gaza and Israel regardless of their ethnic origin. A London University- and Harvard-trained Palestinian doctor who was born and raised in the Jabalia refugee camp in the Gaza Strip and 'who has devoted his life to medicine and reconciliation between Israelis and Palestinians' (New York Times), Abuelaish is an infertility specialist who lives in Gaza but works in Israel. On the strip of land he calls home (where 1.5 million Gazan refugees are crammed into a few square miles) the Gaza doctor has been crossing the lines in the sand that divide Israelis and Palestinians for most of his life - as a physician who treats patients on both sides of the line, as a humanitarian who sees the need for improved health and education for women as the way forward in the Middle East. And, most recently, as the father whose three daughters were killed by Israeli shells on 16 January 2009, during Israel's incursion into the Gaza Strip. It was his response to this tragedy that made news and won him humanitarian awards around the world. Instead of seeking revenge or sinking into hatred, Izzeldin Abuelaish called for the people in the region to start talking to each other. His deepest hope is that his daughters will be 'the last sacrifice on the road to peace between Palestinians and Israelis'.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The sound of a massive drum was the first thing I noticed, when Juliet and I stepped out of the compact car. Each time the confident student struck the drum, the students that were lined up in neat rows facing him would expertly stand at attention then relax into the at-ease stance. With their little heads locked in position to face forward, only their curious eyes darted to appraise us, as we walked past them in flowing salwars toward their principal who stood waiting to greet us. We were the invited guests to teach in their school. And it was very apparent by the radiant smiles on the poised faces of these well-mannered children that this was going to be a wonderful experience we would never forget. I glanced at Juliet and realized that she, too, was barely containing her own enthusiasm, and why not? What seventeen-year-old American girl gets to teach alongside her mother in India? Yes, India was our home for the next few weeks, and we were keenly aware with the sights, smells, and sounds that "home" would be different than what we were accustomed to. However, one blaring similarity remained: children are precious in His sight no matter which half of the globe they call home. Our goal was to convey that pivotal message to each student we had the privilege of serving here in this unfamiliar part of the world.

Book excerpt: 'One of the funniest books of the year' - Guardian A collection of hilarious personal essays, poems and even amusement park maps on the subjects of insecurity, fame, anxiety, and much more from the charming and wickedly funny creator of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. "It's nice to know someone as talented as Rachel is also pretty weird. If you're like me and love Rachel Bloom, this hilarious, personal book will make you love her even more." - Mindy Kaling "Rachel is one of the funniest, bravest people of our generation and this book blew me away." - Amy Schumer Rachel Bloom has felt abnormal and out of place her whole life. In this exploration of what she thinks makes her 'different', she's come to realise that a lot of people also feel this way; even people who she otherwise thought were 'normal'. In a collection of laugh-out-loud funny essays, all told in the unique voice (sometimes singing voice) that made her a star, Rachel writes about everything from her love of Disney, OCD and depression, weirdness, and female friendships to the story of how she didn't poop in the toilet until she was four years old. It's a hilarious, smart, and infinitely relatable collection (except for the pooping thing). Readers love I Want to Be Where the Normal People Are 'I adore Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and this book was exactly what I needed it to be. Would highly recommend.' 5* 'Rachel's voice is loud and clear from the first lines of the book. I've been missing it since Crazy Ex-Girlfriend . . . this time she's talking right to me, in my head, and it is like being part of this newfound Friendtopia.' 5* 'Heartfelt. Honest. Genuine. And funny as hell . . . Rachel writes about the things that could have broken her, but didn't, in a very funny and raw way, and she doesn't hold back.' 5* 'Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is a hilarious and honest show which does not hold back when confronting the truth of sex, love, mental illness and life. This same comedic and chaotic energy is channelled in Bloom's wonderful book which I would highly recommend, whether you are a previous fan of hers or not.' 5*

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Creative in Struggle is the true and frank account of the author's experience of teaching Karen students in a refugee camp on the Thai/Burma border. It presents actual events but does not reduce them down to a mere chronology. Instead, it charts a challenging reflection on the frailties of being a helper, the weaknesses of being a Westerner, and a realization of the lived meaning of spiritual freedom, even when they are painful to admit. Interspersed between the author's chapters are essays written by the students themselves. The essays tell their stories, in their words, of what it means to be an oppressed and targeted, tortured and hunted, silenced and displaced people. Although the story is an intensely personal one, through the articulation of the inner psyche, the reader is moved from a safe and distant place of the observer, into one which, at times, feels incredibly close, utterly naked, and frighteningly vulnerable. The reader is compelled to consider the implications of freedom, of oppression, and of personal responsibility. Creative in Struggle brings to the forefront of our minds, and to the center of our hearts, one unavoidable and self-evident truth; that their freedom and ours are, indeed, inextricably linked.

Download or read book in PDF or another Format One Nation Under Seige written by William P. Chad and published by Author House. This book was released on 2013-09 with total page 541 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book is a true story of survival and valor that was written by William P. Chad during the second part of the 20th Century A.D. He has dedicated it to his mother Makroohi. Together they emigrated to The United States of America from Lebanon at the end of WWI after been exiled from Malatya, their homeland of Western Turkey, former Armenian territories. William spent most of his adult life writing it. He did a great job in describing the WWI Era events with the accuracy and confidence of someone who was both directly involved and afflicted by them like a war correspondent. He lived through those horrific events. In his tedious work, William strived for perfection and has achieved it. Then he passed away and the work has passed on to us. The content of this book is a time window into WWI Era when tragedy has struck not only the Armenian but also the Greek, Nestorian and Syrian Peoples for their Christian belief. Millions have perished at the hands of Ottoman Turks and their proxies, Kurd mercenaries. It is estimated that between 3.5 Million people have lost their lives during this era. These events are considered to be the first Holocaust of the 20th Century. "Is it easy to kill, to shed blood?" Hakim asked. "There is nothing to it, nothing at all. After the first kill, all the others are." Hakim interrupted him nervously, "I have robbed, but I have never killed, not even a sheep." "You will," the Chieftain said. "I will have to murder?" Hakim questioned. "To kill Armenians is not murder. It is legalized execution. We Kurds are not guilty of murdering the Giaourji. We are merely the instruments performing a service. We do not slay, we execute. Is the knife that stabs the life out of a sheep guilty of murder? Enough nonsense! Now go and pass the word to our men of what we are supposed to engage in by Executive Permission: Kill, Kill, and Kill!" Hakim stood up for a second then sat down again. "How will I know a Turk from an Armenian, hah? They all dress alike..." Hakim insisted. "Pull their pants down; a Christian is never circumcised." It is our hope that such tragedies can be prevented if we strive to raise the awareness of all Peoples on Earth no matter their religious belief... Amen! All truth passes through three stages: First it is ridiculed; second, it is violently opposed; and third, it is accepted as self-evident." Arthur Schopenhauer (1778-1860)
