The Elders are reading:
President Lincoln's 2nd inaugural address ---- "With malice toward none; with charity for all; . . ."
Rule of the Bone by Russell Banks ---- Chappy and his very dysfunctional mother and father leaves you with hope that everyone can practice forgiveness and kindness "The experience of being on earth and living among humans even for only a few years changes you forever. I guess all you can do is make the best of what's clearly a bad situation."
Flight by Sherman Alexie ---- This book is poetic. Zits is a 15 year old boy who has suffered through 21 foster homes since his mother died at 5 years and becomes a 'time-traveling mass murderer'. This book is fearless!
White Noise by Don DeLillo ---- Have just started this . . . more to follow.
