HOW LIFE WAS AND IS AND SHOULD BE: A Digest of David N. Lewis' Best Thoughts on Life as a Boy, a Teacher, and a Man
‘How life was and is’ is always a subject of filtered memory. We seem to remember the worst and best of our past, but not the basic dark hardships that everyone faces in every generation. That ultimately leads many of us ‘old codgers’ to refer to our past as the ‘golden era.’ Obviously, every generation has its positives and negatives. We just do not remember things that way culturally. In this compilation, I attempt to focus on three general topics: 1-My Life and Some Lessons I have Learned2-On Teaching: A Collection of My Writings3-On Boyhood: A Collection of My Reflective Writings‘How life should be’ is a matter of opinion and applied lessons learned; therefore, I address this aspect of my compilation at the end of my various narrative entries.One of my main points of focus in this book is the degradation of our cultures value of male identity. To that end I address one small, but very important aspect of that degradation, i.e., decreased reading skills in all areas and genres for boys. This cultural phenomenon has led to the ever decreasing 'reading for fun' among our youth and especially our boys. This is causing a measurable deleterious effect. Males in large numbers are entering adulthood without knowing the fine art of manliness or possessing employable intellectual skills, e.g., writing well, reading instructions, and creative expressions which are hallmarks of a productive population.To that end, I write and record stories that have a Christian worldview and attempt to appeal to the young men and boys struggling to grow an awesome imagination. My sincere desire is to provide quality narratives to invigorate creativity and mostly to encourage Reading for Fun.
