Carolina Red

Overview


My friends and I have been referred to as the Baby Boomers, the Hippie Kids, and the unthinkable has happened to us…we've got old…we've become our parents…and our parents are dying. Carolina Red is my reaction to this new state of public and personal American affairs. A few questions? Do you still believe in God? And if you do, what is your knowledge of God? Do you still perceive IT (God is meant to be a spirit…spirit has no gender) through medieval eyes? Do you believe we've found ALL the scriptures containing God's words? If we were to discover a history of America written by God…what would it say about US? Ray Shell

Description


Carolina Red FOREWARD by Ray Shell I have lived in the UK since 1978. I returned to the USA in 2013 when my Mother passed away which remains the most traumatic event of my life. I'm at the age when a lot of my friends have parents that are either living in the next room with them, being cared for in a hospital or nursing home, are dying, or have just died. Returning to the USA from being away so long was a shock for me especially when hearing, when I was in the UK, the harrowing events taking place in the USA. When I arrived back in Brooklyn New York, I couldn't believe, if CNN, FOX, and the mainstream media can be believed, the sharp, divisive elements tearing at the fabric of what used to be called the American Dream but seems to have become an American Night Mare. A few questions? Do you still believe in God? And if you do, what is your knowledge of God? Do you still perceive IT (God is meant to be a spirit…spirit has no gender) through medieval eyes? Do you believe we've found ALL the scriptures containing God's words? If we were to discover a history of America written by God…what would it say about US? Ray Shell
