“Beside Me Always: My personal journey of healing, from tragic loss to finding joy through my love of music.” by Judy Unger
“Beside Me Always” is a book about grief and healing. The ten stories in this book share my experiences of grief and how I embraced music once again.When I opened my heart to write the deeply painful experience of losing Jason that my journey toward healing began. Sharing the story of his brief life transformed me, and the grief I carried was lifted. I am a passionate songwriter; my songs comprise a musical of my life. Many of my songs are dedicated to Jason, my 5-year-old son that died in 1992. I rediscovered the songs I composed in my youth and wrote new songs that helped me cope with current challenges. My music is featured on Insight Timer, a popular meditation app, and my blogs myjourneysinsight.com and Illustrating My Life have reached people all over the world. I perform regularly where I live in Southern California. I want to convey my optimism and belief that if I could heal, perhaps others could find hope with my story. If my words and music can bring any level of comfort to another person, then I have achieved more in my lifetime than I ever dreamed of.
Farhana Qazi draws on her background as a pioneering counterterrorism professional and a devout Muslim to offer an insider’s view of what drives girls and women to join radical Islamic movements, and identifies what America and the world community can do to keep them from making this terrible choice.
“Qazi brings hidden Islamic women into the light” No longer invisible, Qazi weaves stories about mothers, sisters, wives who become involved in Islamic extremism with her personal story about growing up Muslim in the United States. As she did with SECRETS OF THE KASHMIR VALLEY, she interviews women from a variety of backgrounds, finding women you’d never suspect of becoming an extremist. Some of her stories will break your heart. All of them will open your mind.
Qazi struggles with the reality that her peaceful religion has been co-opted in the name of unspeakable evil. Whether you are interested in gender bias, religious extremism, or terrorism, this is a must-read book. It’s message will stay with long after you’ve finished the last page, because the story is not finished. Let us hope for more studies from Qazi.~Betsy Ashton
“Must Read” Farhana is an amazing, inspirational woman that has done tremendous work throughout her career. She has struggled with understanding how her beautiful, peaceful religion of Islam could be distorted in ways that make both men and women commit horrendous acts of violence in the name of Allah. This book is a must read; it separates the real Islamic beliefs and values from the “Islamic” foundations being used by terrorists as justification for their repression and violence.~Sarah Tranquilli

The Limits of Power identifies a profound triple crisis facing America: the economy, in remarkable disarray, can no longer be fixed by relying on expansion abroad; the government, transformed by an imperial presidency, is a democracy in form only; U.S. involvement in endless wars, driven by a deep infatuation with military power, has been a catastrophe for the body politic. These pressing problems threaten all of us, Republicans and Democrats. If the nation is to solve its predicament, it will need the revival of a distinctly American approach: the neglected tradition of realism. Andrew J. Bacevich, uniquely respected across the political spectrum, offers a historical perspective on the illusions that have governed American policy since 1945.
Three thousand years ago on a battlefield in ancient Palestine, a shepherd boy felled a mighty warrior with nothing more than a stone and a sling, and ever since then the names of David and Goliath have stood for battles between underdogs and giants. David’s victory was improbable and miraculous. He shouldn’t have won.
Dubbed “the American Tolkien” by Time magazine, George R. R. Martin has earned international acclaim for his monumental cycle of epic fantasy. Now the #1 New York Times bestselling author delivers the fifth book in his landmark series—as both familiar faces and surprising new forces vie for a foothold in a fragmented empire.
In the aftermath of a colossal battle, the future of the Seven Kingdoms hangs in the balance—beset by newly emerging threats from every direction. In the east, Daenerys Targaryen, the last scion of House Targaryen, rules with her three dragons as queen of a city built on dust and death. But Daenerys has thousands of enemies, and many have set out to find her. As they gather, one young man embarks upon his own quest for the queen, with an entirely different goal in mind.
Fleeing from Westeros with a price on his head, Tyrion Lannister, too, is making his way to Daenerys. But his newest allies in this quest are not the rag-tag band they seem, and at their heart lies one who could undo Daenerys’s claim to Westeros forever.
