Early Departures for the Sun, is a riveting book that chronicles the prevailing violence, which permeates our lives and homes. America has become so obsessed with violence that little children are learning to kill before they understand the English alphabet. Many people search for a spiritual answer, only to hope that their faiths would lead them to see their love ones who were violently removed from their lives. Violence also reared its ugly head in today's foster care and adopted homes. In which the children that reside there are the victims of a terrible procedure that terminates parental rights by the thousands from data collected by corrupt Child Protective Service workers. America judicial system has failed our children and America cannot survive by giving its children an option of life in prison or death from gun violence. Early Departures for the Sun, gives honest reflections of how violence destroys the hearts and souls of people in marriages and relationships. The court dockets are replete with court dates from women and men who have filed personal protection orders against people who they now need protection, due to violent and threatening behavior.The author conveys the sadness and despair of parents that have lost children to gun violence, robbing toddlers and infants of a chance of living a fulfilled life. The senseless act of violence is mainly from ex-boyfriends, ex-husbands or teenage cowards that found answers to their problems by shooting in homes and schools without remorse. Early Departures for the Sun gives a realistic view of how violent our world has become, but a more kinder and spiritual view of love ones taking the Early Departure to the Sun right outside heaven's door. Early Departures for the Sun is a CALL OUT book, so that everyone can enlist in the war against violence, as well as an encouragement so we all can stand with those whom may have lost someone to violence

Terrible, i got hiv from a much older man from a low risk. there is a generational gap of men killing with HIV.
The author fails to realize that someone older in most cases gave them the disease
and in my case it was a guy old enough to be my dad.
let the youth live.
and ps
why have "dearest" friends that feel its ok to spread HIV? that is no friend if you are not just like them
