Starting from infancy in 1947, this real life story depicts the youthful denials and hatred for God when things didn’t go his way. Turning his back on his religious upbringing, Russell cheats, lies, steals a car, pokes fun at the vulnerable and does other wrongful behavior that has led to punishment, retribution and ultimately the growth and acknowledgement of the goodness of God and the world. As Russell matures to adolescence, we read of innocence lost; the too rapid growth into adulthood, which cuts short his time of teenage development. Further misjudgment and mistakes, and a disregard for common sense, leave Russell stumbling through his young adult life, caught in a liminal space between youth and adulthood; desire for right and circumstances that encourage wrong. Near catastrophe, combined with unexpected episodes of adventure, eventually lead to Russell getting married and being sent to Vietnam. Here he finally comes to realize that God is good; that he is God of everything. This does not mean Russell’s troubles are over. As he returns home a wounded soldier, with Purple Heart in hand, Russell’s life is slowly crushed. His marriage is broken. His sons are lost to him. His very life seems lost in drugs. Finally Russell is hired by the United States Postal Service, and he musters the strength to turn his life around. Over the course of life’s ups and downs, Russell has proved a worthy and strong human being. The wondrous gift of welcoming two daughters into the world is contrasted with the loss of loved ones. Along the way Russell forms opinions on many important topics in life; some wise, some highly opinionated, but all honest, and all with the goal of helping all Americans and ultimately the world at large. Learn from Russell’s mistakes. Take what wisdom you may from his opinions, and recognize a life well lived. Here are a few excerpts’ you will read that have been taken from his Musings. Consumers Trade-in Program: We Americans deserve to be treated to the best deals and get the most and best of everything possible, to show the rest of the world our government is the best and our way of living is the greatest. Gun Control: There have been too many mass shootings. I think my plan to have gun owners and gun users take my aptitude test will work by having people who live or work with gun owners and gun users to be vigilant if someone refuses to take the test or does not do well on the test, to report them to the proper authorities. There are many things that can be changed or added to our national policies to make for a better America, so join with Russell on his life travels to appreciate life.
