This piece by Sawsan is touching beyond description. I hope you will all be fortunate enough to read it. It will, I think, stay with me for the remainder of mine.

I was born on the day all the banks closed in 1933 and previously rich business men threw themselves out of the windows of tall buildings rather than endure the shame of having no money. It was called the great depression, and it not only affected America, it touched the world. In addition, in the Plains Area where I was born, the worst dust storm ever seen was raging non-stop with valuable top-soil swirling about in the atmosphere and in homes, blogging heads and chests and causing thousands born in subsequent decades to suffer respiratory diseases. As strange as it might seem, these two events were an incredible influence on my life. One never knows when something terrible is about to happen. Do the best you can and share with those in need. We were put on the earth for a reason. Find it and share it with others as we are messengers for God. I am a writer. I write because I have this feeling inside me that it is a necessity. My first two books are spiritual books that are written simply for understanding. The first points out God's continuity and His sameness for all of us. He has no partiality. His requirement for us today is the same as it was in the First Century. Believe and Obey. The second book is the path to spirituality, directions included in Bible text. We must learn through spirituality how to be like Him. This is what He desires of us. My third book is being printed as we speak and it is a love story with God in mind. The trick was to show the heroine's spiritual growth without talking about it. I call it her growth A Metamorphosis, but the main title of the book is To Those Who Would Love.
