Wick or Fuse
Wick or Fuse
About the Book
The genesis for this book occurred one early morning when I “awoke” to see Patsy Ramsey at the foot of my bed. I recognized her from the media coverage surrounding the murder of her daughter, Jon Benet who was 5 years old.
As most would be, I was confused why the apparition of Ms. Ramsey either entered my dream or stood at the foot of my bed. We looked at each other for several seconds when she asked me, “Which would you rather be—the Wick or the Fuse?”
This book provides an eye-opening history of our present psychological state in America and how we have shaped the lens through which we see the world. It offers a sage message hoping to provoke critical thought, self-reflection and examination, with the ultimate goal to inspire actions—large and small. Moreover, it provides simple, incremental ways each person can effect changes within themselves and the world around them.
Wick or Fuse is a serious perspective check. It is not a warm and fuzzy account of our human behavior – but rather a reminder that we could easily be standing on a ledge and need a course correction. This book provides a look at who and where we are as a society and what each of us can do to create change.
This is an awesome book. A must read for everyone as a compass on how to live their life. After the Bible, you should read this book, then read it again. I keep it on my desktop and every once in a while read a section to keep me pointed in the right direction.
