The author invites you to follow him through his journey in order for you to understand the influences in his life. At a tender age, the author is wounded by the death of his single mother and he begins the quest to find himself, a place to belong and a place in society. This quest sends him into a journey of discovery about learning, masculinity, patriotism, his notions of success as well as how to deal with the experience of feeling lost within oneself. The authors sense of fun, determination and zest for life is shown in his quest to find his way, to locate himself and his bearings in a land to which he belongs. Through his reflections, the author hopes to inspire the asking of critical questions about contemporary influences and culture. He hopes to cause a revolutionary awakening of conscience, which should reshape our thinking and transform our hearts and lives.
