I understand the issues in this book as darkness and light. Darkness closes in on a single person of immense talent and potential, and the light is the struggle of those who loved him to understand their loss. Thank you, my friend Judi, for having the courage to bring your emotions to life, and for turning on the light so others may see. Stockton Kelly, USAF Veteran and Patriot, Porterville, California

This is the story of a disaster created by politicians, perpetuated by budget-focused administrators, and witnessed by powerless agency therapists, all of whom ignored the one person who knew the victimís needs best: his mother! Jerry D. Bakus, PsyD. MFT, Bay City, Michigan
