About the Author
I wrote this book not to dictate to anyone. It’s about what you may do to make changes in your life. Teenagers making responsible choices, mothers to hopefully choose the right relationships; dads, grandmothers, grandfathers to hopefully set the examples of what is right and what is wrong. My hope is that your future is brighter in time as mine is now. Because of my age now, this is my finale, and this book a catharsis. I am a crossing guard for my county. I control traffic in school zones. It’s a challenging experience as most things are.
–Walter Paul Lawrence
