Jr. Part II
You Can't Live Forever
About the Book
This book is about a person’s brain and how it thinks. Consider the captain of a battleship in the ocean dropping anchor without knowing how deep the water is because no one knows the deepest parts of the ocean. It is the same with a person’s heart. What makes a man love and not love? Or is there a compromise? People go to psychiatrists to search for answers about themselves. But then there’s the man who doesn’t want to know the truth. The one thing the man knows is that he has a Creator greater than himself. He can identify with that. But he can’t identify to the world who or what he is. This is what Jr. Part II is about. Jr. returns to Chicago. His friends and relatives welcome and accept him, but his parents despise and fear him. Why has he returned? No one understands what is going on in the depths of his heart. Will he succeed in exacting his revenge? Will he find peace with his Maker and himself?

About the Author
I stayed away from the computer room and the file cabinet because my husband’s health and needs took a lot of my time. But like a magnet, the file cabinet attracted me. It seemed to say, “Open me.” I opened the drawers. The notes and files were harder to comprehend. As for myself, I started to understand this man to whom I was married. He can be so stubborn when I give him his medicines or take him to the doctor. But I still love him. I know something the world doesn’t know: how warm his heart is. I did not try to change him when I married him. But I truly didn’t know what I’d gotten—he was then and is today a real mystery. The file cabinet has revealed some secrets, but there are parts of his past no one will ever know.
