In part two of series, Antioch author Dr. Glenn Willis asks “Dear America, Where Do We Go From Here?”
Picking up up where “Dear America, Do You Hear What I Hear?” left off, Glenn Willis, Ed.D., has dedicated his new book to all the middle class citizens who still yearn for the mythical American dream and believe that change is possible. “Dear America, Where Do We Go From Here?” is available now on Amazon Kindle and Barnes and Nobles (Nook books).
An adjunct professor and disabled veteran, Dr. Willis has organized his latest book as a selection of heartfelt, impassioned letters concerning a myriad of current events and social issues. Yet rather than standing on a soapbox and pronouncing an agenda, he offers questions and propositions that should give every reader pause, regardless of his or her political orientation.
“America is the color of the rainbow,” remarked Dr. Willis. “We’re a nation of many cultures and histories, though many of our representatives have developed the worst kind of tunnel vision. Today, Congress protects the interests of the few and turns a deaf ear to the voice of the many. Both parties play this game, and it’s ordinary Americans who are losing every day.”
While the entire middle class has borne the weight of government inaction or cronyism, military veterans have faced perhaps the toughest struggle of all. VA hospital scandals, needless foreign wars and low pay for troops have made it difficult for the nation to keep its promises to veterans. Dr. Willis urges elected leaders to consider the plight of those who have already sacrificed nearly everything yet received so little in return.
Dr. Willis’s vision is to share his hard-won knowledge and experience with today’s generation. He feels the principles that made this nation powerful and humane can still have a transformative effect on society.
