When I was 24 years old, my mentor, Eli Segal, asked to write an oath. It was for this new program called AmeriCorps, to help people see the power of service. Co-writing that AmeriCorps oath is one of the things I'm most proud of. I've see it uttered by Presidents Clinton, Bush, and today, President Obama, who administered it via simulcast as I was swearing in 1,000 people in Florida. There's n... Read more of this blog post »

“We are all ordinary. We are all boring. We are all spectacular. We are all shy. We are all bold. We are all heroes. We are all helpless. It just depends on the day.”
Brad Meltzer

“there's nothing more intimate in life than simply being understood. And understanding someone else.”
Brad Meltzer, The Inner Circle

“She dumped me for the worst reason of all. For absolutely no reason at all...I mean, if she fell in love with someone else, or I did something wrong, or I let her down in some unforgivable way...That, I'd understand, right? But instead, she said...it wasn't anything. Not a single thing. It was just me. I was nice. I was kind. We just...she didn't see the connection anymore. I think she thought I was boring. And the cruelest part is, when someone says something mean about you, you know when they're right.”
Brad Meltzer, The Inner Circle

Ralph Silver Hi Brad!

Here are some of my favorites.
1. The Martian by Andy Weir (great book!)
2. The Things We Keep by Sally Hepworth
3. Enemies & Allies by Kevin J. Anderson

(1) is about an astronaut stranded on Mars, and how he survives.
(2) is about a woman in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease at only thirty-eight years old, and the people around her.
(3) Is about the first meeting of Superman and Batman, set in the 1950s.

I am just starting Artemis, by Andy Weir. This is a new book about settlements on the Moon, and looks fantastic.

Love, Ralph Silver


Janice Bolick Happy New Year.
