As stated in Brion’s introduction, these poems were written and intended as a testimonial of one man’s life for his children and grandchildren. The poems grew into something bigger; seeing the importance for as God’s words states in II, Timothy 3:16-17 all scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for re-proof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness that the man of God may be perfect thoroughly furnished unto all good works. Brion thanks his God for the inspiration he has given him on several of these poems. He thanks his daughters as workers and inspiration also. It has never been his intention to hurt anyone with his writings. If so, get over it and change your life as well. The last poem of this book is Brion’s letter to any addict struggling to overcome a hard addictive behavior. Get and seek the help you need. Believe in the true God and please don’t victimize your family. Brion hopes these readings have been enjoyable and inspirational, but most of all, this is and was his testimonial throughout time for his children and grandchildren of who their father and grandfather was.

From Jailer to Jailed
Author: Bernard B. Kerik
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
The controversial New York City police commissioner and New York Times bestselling author of The Lost Son shares the story of his fall from grace and the effects of his incarceration on his views of the American justice system. Bernard Kerik was New York City’s police commissioner during the 9/11 attacks, and became an American hero as he led the NYPD through rescue and recovery efforts of the World Trade Center. His résumé as a public servant is long and storied, and includes receiving a Medal of Honor. In 2004, Kerik was nominated by George W. Bush to head the Department of Homeland Security. Now, he is a former Federal Prison Inmate known as #84888-054. Convicted of tax fraud and false statements in 2007, Kerik was sentenced to four years in federal prison. Now, for the first time, he talks candidly about what it was like on the inside: the torture of solitary confinement, the abuse of power, the mental and physical torment of being locked up in a cage, the powerlessness. With newfound perspective, Kerik makes a plea for change and illuminates why our punishment system doesn’t always fit the crime. In this extraordinary memoir, Kerik reveals his unprecedented view of the American penal system from both sides: as the jailer and the jailed. With astonishing candor, bravery, and insider’s intelligence, Bernard Kerik shares his fall from grace to incarceration, and turns it into a genuine and uniquely insightful argument for criminal justice reform.

Edwina the Aardvark
Author: Tony Collingwood, Trevor Ricketts
Edwina the Aardvark hates her looks -- her nose is too big, her eyes are too small and her skin is blue. But when she sets out to change them, she finds love instead. Edwina the Aardvark is one of a series of small format storybooks for preschool children, based on the hugely popular TV animation series Animal Stories. Each title -- based on a single TV episode -- follows the amusing antics of an animal character who is struggling to overcome a particular burden in life, such as baldness in the lion, bad breath in the dog, ugliness in the aardvark and slowness in the snail. The stories are told in delightful rhyming verse, accompanied by bold colourful illustrations derived from the animation. Funny and appealing, this series of eight titles will enthral fans of the TV programme and newcomers alike, and makes a charming set for young children to collect.
