This is a story about two people who met at work. They were from two different cultural backgrounds: Lewis, southern black, and Chris, northern white.

This is a true story of one man’s life—from a small child to an adult man. It is about his lifetime of trauma, heartbreak, persecution, hardships, and many other afflictions that no person should have to endure. He lived through racism, bullying, loneliness, physical abuse, homelessness, four possible life-ending illnesses, and three life-saving surgeries. After undergoing brain surgery in 1981 at the age of twenty-one, he was given only one year to live—three at the max—but didn’t die. This story is about having to live an entire life with the notion that death could come at any moment. All this was compounded by living every day with life’s common ups and downs. Religion was abandoned but then refound. He was married, raised a family, had a career, then got divorced twice, lost his job, lost everything, and became homeless. Having endured through it all, with faith, with perseverance, and with many miracles in between, he was able to write this book. He hopes to be able to help anyone who may be struggling with a similar fate and provide them the tools to carry on from the examples of his life. This is his true life story, so help him God.
