by Phil Groom This book offers readers a glimpse of the world through a realistic idealists point of view. While it identifies many tragedies in American society, it challenges readers to take on the responsibility of righting social wrongs that keep individuals from finding hope. For those who are tired of a society overloaded with old-time traditions and would like to read what you have often yearned to say, this book is for you. At once pessimistic and optimistic, this book is designed to motivate Americans to take a stand for compassion and ethics in a society that values neither.
