This book deals with the parental factor, and how we can maximize the optimum parental influences to direct a satisfactory outcome, all things considered.

A group of entities on the other side of the veil came together for the specific purpose of dictating this material to Sherri through automatic writing. This was originally introduced in her first book, “Windows of Opportunity.” As they stated, “The purpose of this book is simple. It is to help people make it through the Shift with as little stress and drama as is humanly possible during a sensation of this type, and it is sensational as it is something that beings are gathering from all corners of the universe to see. It is something that entities would give there ‘soul teeth’ to be part of because it is so juicy and so new and so historic. Being on your side and having to worry about weather changes and storms and disasters isn’t fun, and we all know that, but on this side we know that every one of you who is there signed up for it and you were chosen to be there. It is not something that you are part of because of bad luck.”

America is a great nation in so many ways: we enjoy unparalleled freedoms; a robust economy characterized by hard work and entrepreneurship; a justice system which permits citizens to be judged by a jury of their peers; the greatest healthcare system in the world and much more. Considering what we have in America, what can possibly be wrong? To start with, 9/11 sent a message to Americans that we need to pay closer attention to what is going on around the world. As citizens, we also need to monitor U.S policies abroad and how they influence other people with whom we share the planet. America's decline in popularity, even among our allies, deserves close scrutiny and warrants introspection. For all of our wealth, to many of America's citizens, this feels like a nation of haves and have-nots. Many middle income Americans have seen their incomes stagnate relative to dramatically accelerating incomes of the wealthy. Our inner cities are plagued with drugs, violence, children growing up without fathers and decaying public schools. Even in the suburbs, many teens face problems, which for some seem so overwhelming, that suicide seems the only way out. Many Americans are disenchanted with the political process in which our politicians all too often fail to have the strength of their convictions and waste the tax dollars of hard-working Americans. In spite of our great healthcare system, an astonishing number of Americans are overweight, smoke cigarettes, are alcoholics or drug addicts, and don't exercise. Ten Steps to American Greatness outlines a specific agenda for America and will arm the average reader with enough knowledge to be an effective citizen-and the envy of your peers when discussing the major issues of our time!

During the time I was dealing with my mother and her reactions to Mikes apparent abuse of me no one ever knew I had been victimized again, several times. The boyfriends at the time of my aunt Camille and Kim had been told of my abuse and apparently thought it was a good idea to try also. A part of me blamed my aunts for telling my secrets. I never spoke to anyone of these secrets out of fear of loosing more family. I know youre probably reading this wondering why I didnt tell anyone, well if you read the rest of this book I would think you could understand. I didnt want to mess up anyone elses home or happiness. I mean these were my aunts, the very people who were helping me through it all at the time. I didnt think holding on to those secrets affected my life much but in the summer of 2010 I decided to release this burden. I told Camille of what her boyfriend had done to me crying through my entire confession. I begged her not to be mad at me and prayed this secret wouldnt affect our relationship; after all we have become really close over the years. Camille couldnt believe what I was saying although she wasnt in denial, she had lots of questions and she began to cry also. She wanted to know if any of her other boyfriends had tried anything with me or to me and I told her no. Telling her the role her boyfriend played was like lifting a forty pound weight off my shoulders. Until this day I have not yet told Kim of what her boyfriend had done. He is actually responsible for taking my virginity. I figure it took me more that twenty years to tell Camille and although I will tell Kim, itll just take me more time to do so.
