I have learned that life is what you allow God to make it. You see, my story was once different. I found solidification in my story when I recognized the writer of it. In return, I was able to accept understanding over unchanging. My story is similar to others; but of course , it is different in scenarios and situations. We all struggle. We all laugh. We all love. We all h ...more

Part poetry and part journal, Derrick L. Randall has published a collection that is clear and sincere, a break from the usual blow by blow military memoirs I spend a lot of time reading I my free time.
