Labor of Love

I got to spend a great Labor Day weekend cookout with several folks I really enjoy being with, including Homer Hickam, whose book Rocket Boys (October Sky) I have a trivial link to: I was the first to review it on Amazon. Or at least I thought I was until I just looked it up and saw that I was second by a few hours. Well, I was the first to predict its incredible success. Speaking of success, that’s his recent inspirational book I’m holding, We Are Not Afraid. I read it today on a flight and immediately purchased two more copies for my children. I will not be the first to review it on Amazon, but like everyone else, I will give it five stars. It is a wonderful motivational message for challenging times.
