To my son, Bret, who breaks my heart daily with the
sheer, unavoidable fact that he’s growing up, becoming
a man, and making me realize what an incredible job
he’s done in maturing. I can’t take the credit for the
wonderful young man he’s becoming; that success is his
alone to claim. And it’s one he’s improving upon daily.

And to Roo Roo. Yeah, you know who you are. I
couldn’t have been who I am, do what I do, or live as
I live without those first years that you befriended me.
There are no words to describe . . . There are no ways
to express . . . You saved me with the gift you gave me in
faith, in belief, and in love.

To both of you, you bless me daily.

FOREWORD

Throughout the ages man has struck against man with merciless strength through prejudice, ignorance or fear.

Humanity, in all its often courageous, intuitive and compassionate acts, is still capable of great evil against one another.

Blood has been spilled.

Power has been sought, fought for, betrayed for, and souls destroyed in the quest for.

And those who spilled the blood; started the wars; betrayed their countries, their friends and their children for power; sold their souls for it, have still had their moments of kindness, their moments of compassion.

But have we really learned from the past?

Have we taken to heart the mistakes our forefathers made and begun the quest to ensure they’re never made again?

This is the “What If . . .” behind the Breeds.

Have we learned from our past?

Have we learned from the prejudices, the acts of mercilessness, and the unthinking search for power our forefathers sought?

Or is man, in all his, or her, humanity, only waiting for the chance . . .
