About the Book

            In January of 1776,  Thomas Paine published a 79-page pamphlet entitled, “Common Sense.” The booklet supported independence of the Colonies. More than a half-million copies were sold, which helped unite the people to win the war with England.

            Today in the 21st Century, I have written a short book about human life on earth and the journey of our souls (intelligent energy) to God’s realm - heaven.  I was brought up in a religious family and, as an adult, have enjoyed a career as a scientist focused on earth’s past. I’ve put together facts and historical information from both religion and science to help understand that what we do and how we treat each other on earth not only ensures togetherness here, but also for our external existence in the beyond.

            With a global virus war impacting all of us, the peaceful future we envision for our children is now on the brink of destruction. While it is encouraging to see young people standing up for their rights and protections, we must work together with them to stop hatred, harm and random killing of fellow citizens. We all have differences but need to remember we are all God’s children.

            Our short life on earth is only the beginning. Our souls continue on to another existence we call heaven. And, we all know good is better than evil and love is better than hate, as is fundamental within the principles we were taught as children; love your neighbor, respect one another and be kind.

            This short book is a reminder that our behavior on earth will have an effect on our journey to the beyond. With all that is going on around us and incidents of hostility via social media and on our streets, many have forgotten the words of God and the teachings of Jesus.

            The nation and our democracy are at stake. Hopefully, this book will inspire us to remember the most important goal is the future for our children. Please read and pass the message forward. With 90-percent of the population believing in God, we citizens should all be hopeful and teamed up in our quest for peace and unity now and forever.
