This book is the compilation of the best submissions to the essay contest, Last 72, organized by Everest Productions and The Fountain in 2010. As you read along, you will witness an inmate regretting his past life and taking shelter into hopes for God’s mercy, a mother ready to move the entire planet to mobilize for her autistic child when she would not be around for him any more, an immigrant’s thankfulness for a naval officer who saved his mother from the sea, and many other touchy stories and answers for a shaky question.

As-Salamu Alalikum which means peace be with you. I googled my name and this essay contest came up from many years that have passed. It's nice to have read it again being so long ago reminding oneself of what I might do in the last 72 hours of my life. Although things have changed a bit since then they remained quite the same and as the essay states. Thank you for the opportunity to participate and the surprise to find it on google today. All the writers of the essays have left tenderness in my heart from their expression of words. Thank you, Brother Mustafa Tabanli for compiling and choosing our essays. Good has come from it all and God willing to continue to be good. Peace be with you. Sincerely, Patricia C.
