Thank you so very much for this incredible book (and series)! You, through Dave and Cletus and Alafair and Molly, truly do speak for those who have no voice. Thank God we have you.
Thank you for making Molly and Alf (don't use that name) strong women who give us hope through their courage. Women who refuse to knuckle under to evil. And, thank you for letting Thelma learn that hatred gets us nowhere and it's only through forgiveness that we can be relieved of anger and hatred.
What happened in New Orleans with Katrina and Rita was nothing compared to what we, as a country allowed to happen in the aftermath. All of us must share the blame for allowing the outrages that have happened in our country for the past seven years.
I live in hope that the outrage I, and many others, expressed last November, will continue to 2008, and we can wrest our country back from many of the criminals who have purged our Constitution.
This book should be required reading for everyone in Congress. It wouldn't do to send one to the Pres and VP. I'm fairly certain they can't read above the second grade level. And, sadly, they don't give a damn as long as their pockets are lined with their "filthy lucre."
We cannot let them win.
Finally, Jim, God has a special place for you in Heaven. Just don't make the crossing too soon. We need men like you who will continue to speak for us.
