Grief expert, Gemini Adams, wrote this Mom's Choice Gold Award Winning book, "Your Legacy of Love: Realize the Gift in Goodbye" to help others understand that writing a Will simply isn't enough. After losing her Mom to cancer, Gemini quickly discovered that an inheritance of money and material possessions doesn't give surviving family the ongoing support or continued connection they desire. Wondering if her need for a more loving legacy was shared, she started an online survey asking: "What would you prefer if one of your parents died: to inherit their wealth or a letter saying how much they loved you?" Over 90% expressed a wish for the loving letter. In this heartfelt and inspirational book, Gemini explains that our real "wealth" lies not in our Financial Assets, but our Emotional Assets: the stories, lessons, values, wisdom image, voice, laughter and love that makes us who we are. And how this purposeful activity, is not, as some might expect, a morbid task, but one that can bring incredible insight, peace of mind, and healing, especially for those dealing with aging parents, a terminal illness or loss. By capturing and sharing our Emotional Assets in a Legacy of Love, we can leave our children, partners, and grandchildren a precious parting gift, a timeless memento that will surely be treasured forever. Readers will also discover how to: - Write loving letters to gift as future surprises. - Encourage grief recovery for surviving family. - Provide them with ongoing emotional support. - Minimize effects of grief and bereavement. - Guarantee the preservation of special memories. - Capture and record their life story. - Limit stress surrounding end-of-life situations. - Achieve peace of mind and a sense of meaning to life. - Educate themselves and overcome denial about death and dying. - Plan a life celebration or funeral that truly reflects them.

Randi had it all: a wealthy husband, cars, a series of beautiful homes in Beverly Hills, jewelry, dazzling clothes, shoes to die for; a few thoroughbred racehorses of her own, and another horse just to ride. So why wasn't Randi satisfied? What was missing? She was haunted in her dreams by a little boy, who was sometimes an infant, and sometimes a toddler, and always a cheerful angel. A psychic told her that she was destined to become a mother. The universe told her it was time to choose: wealth or motherhood. Randi took the challenge: she left her husband and moved to Santa Barbara, where she eventually remarried and became a mother at the age of 45. This book is a story of a dream fulfilled. It is also an account of one woman's search for the meaning of love. Grab Your Miracle tells the inspiring story of Randi's quest to know the meaning of love, which is also the meaning of life. She tells her tale with honesty and humor, a tale of celebration and regret. It has been an often bumpy road, fraught with disappointment, tears, and a few wrong turns, but the journey has been, and it continues to be, a profound blessing and a miraculous adventure.

The revelatory memoir of Lezley McSpadden—the mother of Michael Brown, the African-American teenager killed by the police officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Missouri on August 9, 2014—sheds light on one of the landmark events in recent history. “I wasn’t there when Mike Mike was shot. I didn’t see him fall or take his last breath, but as his mother, I do know one thing better than anyone, and that’s how to tell my son’s story, and the journey we shared together as mother and son." —Lezley McSpadden When Michael Orlandus Darrion Brown was born, he was adored and doted on by his aunts, uncles, grandparents, his father, and most of all by his sixteen-year-old mother, who nicknamed him Mike Mike. McSpadden never imagined that her son’s name would inspire the resounding chants of protesters in Ferguson, Missouri, and ignite the global conversation about the disparities in the American policing system. In Tell the Truth & Shame the Devil, McSpadden picks up the pieces of the tragedy that shook her life and the country to their core and reveals the unforgettable story of her life, her son, and their truth. Tell the Truth & Shame the Devil is a riveting family memoir about the journey of a young woman, triumphing over insurmountable obstacles, and learning to become a good mother. With brutal honesty, McSpadden brings us inside her experiences being raised by a hardworking, single mother; her pregnancy at age fifteen and the painful subsequent decision to drop out of school to support her son; how she survived domestic abuse; and her unwavering commitment to raising four strong and healthy children, even if it meant doing so on her own. McSpadden writes passionately about the hours, days, and months after her son was shot to death by Officer Darren Wilson, recounting her time on the ground with peaceful protestors, how she was treated by police and city officials, and how she felt in the gut-wrenching moment when the grand jury announced it would not indict the man who had killed her son. After the system failed to deliver justice to Michael Brown, McSpadden and thousands of others across America took it upon themselves to carry on his legacy in the fight against injustice and racism. Tell the Truth & Shame the Devil is a portrait of our time, an urgent call to action, and a moving testament to the undying bond between mothers and sons.

"Jewish Fathers: A Legacy of Love is a collection of stories and photographs celebrating the lives of contemporary American Jewish fathers. It is a story of struggle and success with a universal message for all fathers who seek to give their children the American dream, a life full of opportunity." "The image of the Jewish father is synonymous with the Yiddish word mensch, a good, kind, decent human being. The first mensch that we meet in life is usually our father. Honest. Hardworking. Fair. Charitable. Funny. Reverent. Honorable. Responsible. A mensch. It is a standard we try to live up to, a standard that Jewish fathers have been charged with since the time of the biblical patriarchs, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob." "This book of photographs and interviews is the first of its kind, exploring and honoring the role of American Jewish fathers. It honestly explores issues facing Jewish fathers in modern American society today: challenges of balancing career and family responsibilities, intermarriage, assimilation, education, single parenting, raising children with special needs, divorce, and religious observance." "The men depicted here come from the broad spectrum of Jewish America - from secular to strictly orthodox, new fathers and grandfathers, the famous and the unheralded, rural and urban, immigrants, converts - men with moving and uplifting stories to share. This is the modern world of our fathers. One that is steeped in tradition and exciting transitions."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved

Conceived within the dialectics of militarism Strategic Alliance establishes theoretical concepts in (3) three specific areas of focal point. 1.) Revolutionary Philosophy 2.) Organizational Structure (political Dictatorship/Military) 3.) Political Economy- Socialist Economics Written from the perspective of a New Afrikan Revolutionary, Strategic Alliance gives the reader insight into the psychological mind set of those who were forced underground by the U.S. Government clandestine war of counter intelligence to destroy the infrastructure of New African Liberation Organizations. Giving credence to various dialectical points of view, Strategic Alliance has within its chapters actual government documents released under the freedom of Information Act, and those seized from an intelligence storage facility used by the government; which precipitated a forced admittance to the existence of the Counter Intelligence program. This book is a documentation of source material taken from various ideological proponents of World Afrikan Revolutionary philosophers. In summary, Strategic Alliance will create a tremendous amount of controversy in general society as well as academic and law enforcement circles.
