You might remember my Christmas story that I wrote at the end of last year. I was talking to my friend in California using Skype this morning and she suggested that I write a summer sequel.

We are all social animals, we all want to get along and live in harmony so why do some people insist on rocking the boat? Some people are power crazy and hungry all the time for more. They don’t seem to feel any empathy for anyone. What can be done to control such people and make society and communities feel safer; more secure? (more…)
