Anticipation of death or anniversaries of the death of a loved one can be worse than the actual event. Having said this, it doesn't mean actual events such as anniversaries of a loved one's death should not be acknowledged, they should be. Make your own tradition of memories and celebrate the lives of your loved one in the way shape and manor that works for you. As time passes, some memories are still even clearer. Hold on to those times and clear the closet in your mind of any negative thoughts. You have permission to be sad as long as you need to be, yet you also have permission to get on with your own living. Make a list of the things and ideas you have for your living your life. As you achieve these goals and cross of your list, add more, do more, and therefore you are living. This book is definitely a quick read if you choose for it to be. My wish for you is that you choose to take some time and invest in your feelings only to unfold yourself. When you start to take inventory of your soul and priorities, write it and you will have a reference forever. Think about rainbows, butterflies, and snowmen.

African Americans and Their Representatives in the U.S. Congress

Here, Katherine Tate examines the significance of race in the U.S. system of representative democracy for African Americans. Presenting important new findings, she offers the first empirical study to take up the question of representation from both sides of the constituent-representative relationship. The first half of the book examines whether black members of the U.S. House legislate and represent their constituents differently than white members do. Representation is broadly conceptualized to include not only legislators' roll call voting behavior and bill sponsorship, but also the symbolic acts in which they engage. The second half looks at the issue of representation from the perspective of ordinary African Americans based on a landmark national survey. Tate's findings are mixed. But, in the main, legislators' race does shape how they represent their constituents and how constituents evaluate them. African Americans view black representatives more positively than they do white representatives, even those who belong to their own political party. Black legislators, however, are just as likely as white representatives to sponsor and gain passage of bills in the House. Tate also concludes that black House members are more liberal as a group than are their black constituents, but that there is considerable divergence in the quality and type of representation they provide. The findings reported here will generate controversy in the fields of politics, law, and race, particularly as debate commences over renewing the Voting Rights Act, which is set to expire in 2007.

Being a teenager in today's complex world is a difficult enough task, but adopted teens have a unique struggle: to discover their identity and a sense of belonging and place in the world, which often means coming to terms with their past. The Face in the Mirror, based on numerous interviews with adopted teens, adoptive parents, and birth parents, brings attention to the growing and often controversial phenomenon of teenagers wanting to know where they came from. The book, written for both teenagers and adults, is a frank discussion of the issues surrounding adoption, and in particular what adoptees, adoptive parents, and birth parents should know when adopted teens want to discover their past. The book also addresses the impact of cross-cultural or cross-racial adoption, as well as the legal parameters of adoption in the US and Canada, including the complex emotions involved. As written by Marion Crook, an adoptive parent herself and the author of previous books about teens, The Face in the Mirror articulates the complexity of adoption issues with candor and compassion.

Fleming breaks new critical ground in charting Hemingway's preoccupation with writers and their roles as artists. The Face in the Mirror develops a largely overlooked theme in Hemingway's writing--his depiction of writers and the special problems they face, professionally and personally. From his earliest years, Hemingway was preoccupied with the artistic and ethical dilemmas of his writer protagonists. Fleming's book explores Hemingway's concern with writers and writing from the 1920s through the early 1960s.

"Face in the Mirror" is a collection of twenty-five poems of reflection and introspection. A lot of poetry is designed to express one's reactions and emotions towards the world outside- essentially presenting the poet's perspective on what is happening around him. "Face in the Mirror" reverses that process- it is a look deep inside, into one's own psyche. The poems are all intensely personal, but deal with themes and emotions that are truly universal. In an age where so much of our validation seems to depend on things and people external to us, the poems in this collection force a deep look within ourselves and the choices we make.

Even in this tiny fragment of philosophy I managed to miss two essential points. "Know thyself," and "The unexamined life is not worth living," were Socrates' maxims. I never bothered to ask myself "Who am I?" A brilliant University of California-Berkeley philosophy student, Eloy Wise suffers from multiple personality disorder. Each of his three personalities is capable of taking him into different realms of experience and self-exploration, and it is not long before his life changes dramatically. Eloy is a promising and attractive young man who likes the company of older men from various cultures. Romantic and idealistic Harmony is a bright university student determined to become the lover of his controversial and charismatic philosophy professor. And José Luis, the third personality sharing this one body, is a reckless young Chicano ready for sexual adventures, seeking his paternal heritage in Mexico. From a Northern California college campus to the gay bars of Mexico and San Francisco, Three Faces in the Mirror reveals one young man's journey to find his true self.

Someone Else's Face in the Mirror: Identity and the New Science of Face Transplants

In 2005, surgeons in France removed part of the face from a cadaver and grafted it onto the head of a 38-year-old woman grossly disfigured by a dog attack. Three years later, in December, 2008, surgeons at the Cleveland Clinic announced they had performed the first U.S. face transplant. Although modern culture is accustomed to pushing medicine and the human body beyond all limits, the world's first partial face transplant and the seven that have followed have caused a stir that still reverberates globally. This book begins with the story of Isabelle Dinoire, the recipient of the first face transplant, and chronicles her surgery and battles with tissue rejection. Its scope widens with a look at how surgical teams, including three U.S. transplant teams, are in a global race to perform the first full face transplant, and at how medical history has led up to this point—with prior successful transplants ranging from body parts as simple as cornea to those as neurologically complicated as the heart, a hand, and a penis. The most novel among these surgeries—the face transplant—conjures up particular and expansive psychological issues. Authors Bluhm and Clendenin show how transplant recipients struggle with functional issues including a lifetime of anti-rejection drugs, a danger highlighted by the recent death of the second face transplant patient, in China. But just as challenging in the case of face transplant is the psychological effect on—and potential threat to—identity. Who are you, if suddenly your face—or a significant portion of it—is not what you were born with? What is it like to look in the mirror, and see a face that is not the one you have always had? Dinoire lamented, "It will never be me." That statement is an absolute simplification of the identity issues a face transplant can create, explain the authors. Bluhm and Clendenin show how, across history and media, humankind—via medicine, literature, film, and other media—has dreamed of a day when face transplants would be possible. With so many disfigurements occurring among the military in Iraq, and experimental face transplants too expensive for implementation in the private sector, it is likely that the U.S. military will take the reins and further face transplant techniques as quickly as possible to serve injured personnel.

This tragic story is based upon a young woman’s fight for survival and acceptance, it tells of the emotional journeys in her life to find that very acceptance. From the age of just seven, her life is turned upside down by everyone around her. At such a small age she is left completely alone to fight her way through the traumas that were so cruelly thrust upon her. Her mother and father simply turned their back on her, leaving her with just her abusive stepfather to depend upon. It describes her pain, her fears, and the neglect she felt as that child and how eventually she found the strength to cope alone. As a grown woman, she writes about the dramatic impact it all had on her life and explains the many wounds that will never heal; her fight is a true inspiration to those out there that may have encountered similar experiences. Her advice may be simple but not always possible for some, to believe in yourself at all times and never allow anyone to control your inner thoughts. Have the ability to shine through the roughest of times, prove to those who have no faith in you that you are a good person who deserves better. Most importantly, be who you choose to be, not who you are moulded into being. I wish all those out there good luck for your future and I hope that given time you will find your own strength and eventually find your way home.

What does it mean to be human? imagine you're in a tragic accident. You expect to die! Instead, you awaken in a body that is not yours. Not even your own species. Not even your own gender. In a desperate attempt to save your life your brain has been transplanted into the only body available, the body of a genetically engineered slave. Everyone is quick to assure you that you are still "legally human," but you know that when any stranger sees you they see property or perhaps a Frankenstenian abomination. It is a transformation that causes Todd Herschel to reevaluate his sense of self, his gender identity, her sexual orientation, and how humanity relates to its biological creations. If your brain is in a new body, whose soul do you have?
