Resilience — Silence Without an Extra "I": Reflections
By: Dr. Mary J. Crane, Master of Science, Educational Specialist
About the Book
Resilience — Silence Without an Extra "I": Reflections explores how America has changed since 9/11. It gives one food for thought about what has happened and is happening through poetry. What is our truth? How can we make changes for the better of brotherhood, despite color, creed, or other individual personal difference? One person’s truth may not be another person’s truth, and this is perfectly okay in America.
Mary Crane was inspired to write these poems to process the present events of American history. The poems contained in this collection deliver peace without prejudice, and unity of all people.
