This story is about two women who loved the same man: Sam. His undeniable charm and kind gestures made them fall in love with him, but unfortunately, he later became their biggest mistake. Sam was an ordinary man with an extraordinary sense of crime, and he knew how to play with lives. As a young man, he was really handsome with a lean build. As soon as Macy was introduced to him, she just fell for him, and frequent meetings continued. During their meetings, Sam confided in Macy and told her about the abuse he suffered as a teenager and how the gruesome abuse affected his mental health, but he made sure that Macy knew that he was totally fine and eligible to marry her. Her mind said something else, but her heart was totally filled with Sams love, and living without him for even a second felt like years. She decided to talk to her dad about their marriage. As a protective father, he put a lot of thought into this big decision and finally agreed upon the proposal, which meant that the first step to Sams master plan was successful. He was not deeply in love with Macy, but he rather fell for the money offered in this relationship. He was very greedy and selfish and didnt make any true commitments. He joined the business and was soon made the CEO of the company while Mr Anderson blindly trusted him for everything and came to the company for random visits. But one fateful evening, he was gruesomely murdered by none other than Sam.

This biography of the late Rev. Fr. Michael Rodrigo, OMI (1930-1987) of Sri Lanka, chronicles a life fearlessly devoted to the service of the poor, efforts to witness Christ to the poor through an innovative interfaith dialogue, and a collaboration for their social and economic empowerment. As a Catholic priest whose life parallels that of the recently martyred Oscar Romero of El Salvador, also assassinated for exposing the exploitation and marginalization of the poor, Fr. Michael was engaged in a selfless journey for justice. The volume analyzes the driving force of his quest to forge a healing bridge between the Christian and Buddhist populations of Sri Lanka through his spiritual grounding in Catholic social teaching and his unique formulation of an interreligious dialogue. It documents the indelible imprint of interfaith understanding he forged up to his untimely death. Interwoven with ethnographic methodology, the book offers a window for understanding the class and religious ruptures stemming from Sri Lanka's colonial history, contextualized in the social realities of poverty in rural Sri Lanka, the political and economic forces implicated in deepening poverty, the resistance struggle by oppressed youth, and Fr. Mike's legacy of justice through peace.

Chief Standing Bear's Journey for Justice

In 1877, Chief Standing Bear's Ponca Indian tribe was forcibly removed from their Nebraska homeland and marched to what was then known as Indian Territory (now Oklahoma), in what became the tribe's own Trail of Tears. "I Am a Man" chronicles what happened when Standing Bear set off on a six-hundred-mile walk to return the body of his only son to their traditional burial ground. Along the way, it examines the complex relationship between the United States government and the small, peaceful tribe and the legal consequences of land swaps and broken treaties, while never losing sight of the heartbreaking journey the Ponca endured. It is a story of survival---of a people left for dead who arose from the ashes of injustice, disease, neglect, starvation, humiliation, and termination. On another level, it is a story of life and death, despair and fortitude, freedom and patriotism. A story of Christian kindness and bureaucratic evil. And it is a story of hope---of a people still among us today, painstakingly preserving a cultural identity that had sustained them for centuries before their encounter with Lewis and Clark in the fall of 1804. Before it ends, Standing Bear's long journey home also explores fundamental issues of citizenship, constitutional protection, cultural identity, and the nature of democracy---issues that continue to resonate loudly in twenty-first-century America. It is a story that questions whether native sovereignty, tribal-based societies, and cultural survival are compatible with American democracy. Standing Bear successfully used habeas corpus, the only liberty included in the original text of the Constitution, to gain access to a federal court and ultimately his freedom. This account aptly illuminates how the nation's delicate system of checks and balances worked almost exactly as the Founding Fathers envisioned, a system arguably out of whack and under siege today. Joe Starita's well-researched and insightful account reads like historical fiction as his careful characterizations and vivid descriptions bring this piece of American history brilliantly to life.

Determined to be a U.S. Marine Corps officer, Bruce Yamashita enrolled in Officer Candidate School, where he was the target of persistent racial harassment by officers and staff. After enduring nine weeks of emotional and physical abuse, Yamashita was disenrolled in April 1989 kicked out of the Marine Corps because of the color of his skin. Fighting Tradition is Yamashita s own story of his courageous struggle to expose a pattern of racial discrimination against minorities that has existed at various levels of the Corps. With the support of a broad coalition of community and civil rights organizations, the Hawaii-born law school graduate fought a five-year-long legal, political, and media battle against the military establishment that ended in his commissioning as a captain and the revision of Marine Corps policies and procedures. Fighting Tradition not only is a moving story of personal sacrifice and vision, but contributes also both directly and indirectly to our understanding of the complexities of institutional racism in a politically conservative, demographically shifting society. It is a unique window into the dynamics of race, government, and the law and a stirring reminder of the importance of political mobilization by the individual to achieve justice. "

A young mother awakens early one morning to find her tiny three-month-old premature daughter, Natalia, struggling to breathe and almost rigid. After a call to 911, Natalia is taken by ambulance with her mother to the ER. Almost immediately doctors have brain and bone scans ordered for Natalia. The results of those scans indicate that she is unlikely to live. Mother, father, and extended family are devastated. But the next statement by doctors is almost as unsettling, and even more shocking. They unequivocally diagnose her condition as "shaken baby" abuse. That horrific diagnosis initiates a family journey through the court system that would last for years in search of the truth. This book describes in detail that journey and its impact on the people involved.

A private investigator is as much as professional as a lawyer, a teacher, or a police officer. Private investigation is an occupation that is essential but frequently misunderstood. Most people already have a distorted view of private investigators. Some view them as glamorous individuals living on the edge, while others view them as individuals with poor judgment and bad reputations. The average investigator is neither; he or she is simply a professional who conducts businesses in a well-informed and methodical manner.
