Bless the Falling Leaves

It is nearly impossible to read with tears in your eyes. After the first chapter I kept a box of tissues and a waste basket handy.
This is an intensely painful book to read because Hank Bruce with his carefully crafted words makes you feel the pain of Darfurian refugees and a homeless Vietnam veteran in the US. Anyone who reads this short story will be profoundly changed as it has done so with me.
I will never treat Christmas and the meaning of our celebration the same again. Here is the true meaning of this sacred holiday. Hank I agree, we are all orphans.

How did you find this story, P M? Just curious. I'm unfamiliar with it.

The author and I are exchanging reviews. I was totally unprepared for this, but it is an excellent read.
Check Hank Bruce out at his author's page on Amazon. He's an amazing guy and writes on a wide range of topics.
