This book is in honor of a group of university students who lived in Munich during WWII. They wrote pamphlets and papers denouncing Nazism and the continuation of the war and the premise that all citizens should rise up for their rights and freedoms against this nightmare. They were caught,tried, and then hung for their beliefs but their courage, fortitude,and dedication lives on in all those who struggle against tyranny,despotism and militaristic violence. This book consists of poetry that tries to wake up that passion and courage here in America where we now find ourselves on the brink of watching a democracy turn into a fascist police state. Our founding Fathers were rebels,radicals and dissenters who knew that to change wrong you must wake up, rise up, and fight to instill change. Let us honor those who rose up before us and fight for what we know is right.

About the author (2007)

Michael Hall was born in Candida, raised in America and is also the author of 4 other books; (1) Observations at the End of Days, (2) Peace is...Inevitable, (3) Wake Up The White Rose & (4) Without Borders. Married 16 years with two sons, gratefully working for the developmentally disadvantaged in a group home. Michael is simply a humble, flawed soul aspiring to be completely good , entirely truthful, and utterly non-violent in aspirations of thought, word and deed. I have found the path, though I fall innumerable times I get back on with so, so far to go.
