      Etched in Sand Epub ì Etched in PDF/EPUB ² ↠ ePUB mdeparenpar.co etched kindle, sand download, Etched in free, Etched in Sand EpubReading this book is made tolerable only by the fact that the reader is informed in the Prologue that it has a happy ending—an example of survival beyond expectations from a horrendous childhood family environment It makes a wonderful story when children from this sort of background are able to thrive as adults I hate to consider how many examples may exist where children never manage to free themselves from the grip of poverty and abuseWhenever I hear a story such as this I suspect that there must have been a mentor somewhere that gave the necessary boost to the youth that enabled their escape from the bad environment There were several sources of help in this story but one in particular was the author's fourth grade teacher People look but don’t see Why?People hear but don’t listen Why?People touch but don’t feel Why?After I write a poem titled “Why?” my fourth grade teacher Miss Muse suddenly seems to take a
