I Write, I Breathe

I am a writer....a master and protector of words. "Like a knife, words should be handled carefully. They can cut deeply, the wound may never heal, and the scars may remain for an eternity. Or they can be used to make space to plant a seed - where fruition births legacy and feeds generations on hope, goodness, and love of humanity." ~Ey Wade

The first book I read by my next author spotlight blow me away. The way she intertwined her characters and the powerful message it conveyed caught me by a pleasant surprise. I experienced so many emotions reading the book, I didn’t understand why. Not until I realized one of the characters hit too close to home. Life happens. It will be okay. These are the things Ey’s book zapped me with. Since then, I have become a fan. Her writing style is different, different meaning, off the charts! Once you read one, you won’t be able to stop until you read them all. Kickin’ It With KeKe…

Hi, I'm So Glad Stopped In....

Review: Beads on a String-America's Racially Intertwined Biographical History #diversity #History #CRT

 

 I'm excited to share the newest review of my American history book.

 
 
A Unique Look at American History
"History is usually told through the eyes of the victor" is an oft-used description of the textbooks we're assigned to read in school.
Unfortunately, a lot of the historical facts and information that don't favor the ones in power get glossed over or totally ignored. Other bits are skewed to stretch the truth or tell only one side of the story.
Ey Wade wanted her home-schooled children to get the whole picture of American history through the eyes of the people making the history. I was very impressed with her focus on presenting a multi-racial history and not emphasizing skin color or ethnicity. Instead, her account values the contributions of the people involved in building our country without using distinctions or labels.
Of course, there were terrible chapters in the history of America we cannot overlook – slavery, the oppression of Native Americans, the mistreatment of Chinese, Japanese internment camps, and the list goes on and on – fueled by hatred, bigotry, and fear. Ey Wade covers these events in a clear and concise, non-biased fashion.
In the introduction, Ey states that "Beads on a String" was written to help everyone learn from the past and use that knowledge to make a better present and future. In other words, in place of dwelling on the wrongs done by our ancestors, it's better to let go and heal. She reminds us we are a nation of immigrants. Instead of being African-American, Asian-American, or European-American, "we need to drop the hyphen, and all be Americans." 
 
MORE:  What are people saying about Beads On A String?


Beads on a String is an approachable, conversational, and interactive history of diversity in America. Instead of a melting pot, Ey Wade envisions the country as a piece of jewelry where the contributions of all of the people who have immigrated here from all over the world add to the beauty of our society. It honors all of the peoples that contributed to this country in a nicely balanced way. Designed as a resource for students it suits the classroom or home-school classroom but also is an enjoyable read for armchair historians and fans of the History Channel. It's a must read for history lovers.

This is the story of the heroes of our collective past. What is incredibly moving is that so many of these heroes have gone unsung for so long.  
Jonathan Ellis, Amazon reader
 
Ey Wade has written a unique and important book that put all racial History under one umbrella. Wade has done a tremendous job collecting information on all races, and all subjects related to them. "Beads on a String" is a piece of History that was missing until this book came out. I highly recommend this book to anyone wishing to understand more about how multiple cultures shaped the US to what it is today. Two thumbs up!
Lola, Amazon reader
 
The "beads" are a metaphor for the cultural, racial, and ethnic diversity of the United States, and the "string" is a metaphor for the whole of the USA. The book is large and fascinating---mainly a series of biographical vignettes on the people the author and her children selected as those who had a major impact on the history of the U.S. All of the "beads" make contributions; the "string" is the richer for the diversity of those contributing. "Beads on a String" has a lot to offer traditional K-12 schools and home schooling parents as supplemental material for various standard curricula in history, civics, and other social sciences.

Mind Your Own Vagina. Ismet's Honor

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/07/13/planned-parenthood-boston_n_5580957.html?ncid=fcbklnkushpmg00000013

The most dangerous thing about the buffer zone being removed between the ranters and the women handling their lives, is the fact most clinics are set in strip malls.
So, when any woman walking to a store near these clinics, stands the chance of being harassed and maybe even hurt by someone who should mind their own business, it is a potentially dangerous situation.

Eventually, one of those self absorbed little women, praying against another woman who may need treatment for cancer or anything beyond contraception, will face the same treatment.

PRO - LIFE is not tattooed on their foreheads and a sign is not on their back. To every female protesting, YOU will be seen as just another vagina, man controls when it comes to being slurred. I'm always amazed how those who (wrongly)believe they are right, always look the angriest and craziest.
 The Abortion Law(named so to stir up anger) was about health care, cancer screening, preventative care for men and women. As with any propaganda, the HEADLINE is to grab your attention. You need to read the blurb and the tiny print to be in the know. They say word of mouth will get the sale...word of mouth can also hurt you, sometimes kill you. Think for yourself. 

In Ismet's Honor there is a scene where Sunny, as an ill 16 year old girl, abandoned by her mother has to cross through the crowd of overzealous ranters to visit one of the only clinics in her town.
 ABOUT THE BOOK- Sunny Verdi Reyes, has always wanted the “good-life.” Husband, home, lot’s of children. After cheering on her best friend and fellow embryologist Belle, through her successful quest for her dream, she wanted those things even more.
Unfortunately, Sunny broke the heart of her fantasy years earlier and it would take more than wishful thinking to get him back.
At 17, unable to voice his opinion against an unwanted abortion, Ismet Honorable O’Neal ran from the girl who killed his dream of the perfect life and the white picket fence.
Now he spends his time aiding other men in being the voice in the lives of their children.
Years later, he returns and Sunny is waiting.
She’s going to need more than the love in her eyes to repair the fences.

Enjoy a small snippet from the scene:

 The small flower pattern on the back of Belle’s shirt intermittently faded in an out. Sunny tried to
keep her attention focused on it. Her head had started hurting on the ride to the clinic and all she wanted to do was close her eyes. She’d stumbled a bit while getting out of the car and removing her things.

 Belle was immediately at her side, grabbing one of the bags and leading the way. The grip she had on her hand, the support needed to continue going.
Sunny elbowed her way through the crowd of protesters blocking the entrance to the clinic. Their volatile, demeaning, chants, berating every female trying to enter as killers and trying- angered her. 
Holding tight to Belle's hand, she shook off the unexpected grasp on her elbow. An older woman, face red and pinched, stared into her face, damning her to the fires of hell. Any other day, Sunny would've taken the words in stride and said nothing, but the woman's condemnation and her self righteous attitude was her undoing.
