Second-time author Sonia P. Myers has shared some of her most trying extreme moments in her life in her book Extreme Poems for Extreme Situations with you, her readers. Now that AIDS too has hit Too Close to Home, Ms. Myers wants to share her concerns and encourage every reader to become more aware, more involved and thirdly, concerned…
Too Close to Home has been written in a style known as “Boot Camp”; the harsh reality of AIDS has not! Obviously has not! According to statistics, AIDS has reached the thoughts of many. Too Close to Home has interviews with persons dying from AIDS. Who can better explain the reality of living with AIDS or dying from AIDS? Too Close to Home has touched bases no one has touched; it reveals things to bring a better perception of the reality of AIDS, and its facts, figures, real-life encounters, and lots more…
Violence is another concern. The reality of violence whether it’s in your neighborhood or around the corner, doesn’t really matter. Violence, spun out of control; real stories, real encounters, real events. However this portion of Too Close to Home gives insight on signs of violence, maybe even in your very own home. You too may have the characteristics described in Too Close to Home. Violence has a tendency to be hidden in most cases. Violence carries the friendliest smile, but the whole while, it plots. I describe violence as if it were a character, only because violence sometime overshadows a person’s mind; the ability to be kind, be who they are. Some people can’t be reached. Don’t wait to be a victim so they can be taught, have a thought; sought; maybe one day even caught… Get involved! Stop the violence!
