Every time I read a newspaper, a newsletter, or a news magazine. Every time I tune in to the news on television, I become frustrated. I wonder, why don’t we have a John Victor out there? My character would fix this world in a heartbeat! Or Brick Little? The other hero in The SEED (my novel) that can be seen at my website www.annrichduncan.com. Brick and John Victor both live by the words of Gandhi: “You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” They also believe what Henry David Thoreau once penned: “Live your beliefs and you can turn the world around.” And then there’s William Shakespeare’s words: “Our doubts are traitors, and make us lose the good we oft might win, by fearing to attempt.”
You know what? I fear that if we don’t attempt to find decent, God-fearing, Gandhi/Thoreau/Shakespeare-loving leaders, we’ll be forever transformed. And that’s not good. Read The SEED! Root for the good guys!
