This is a story based on the life of a very humble family that had their roots set in Mexico in the midforties before heading north and setting foot in America. The family grew in a matter of years. Texas became their home. Raising six boys and one girl brought along many pranks and so many hardships. Lack of education, low wages, and a large family took a toll on the head of the family. But there was always the laughter and optimism of a better tomorrow that kept the family together. Believing in Jesus Christ and having a strong faith helped the family take one day at a time. And then came the Vietnam War. In time, marriages, prosperity, and new families gave new life to the grandparents who finally had it all, in that little town called New Deal.
Author of "Trinity: Finding of the Singer, The Deacon, and The Good Samaritan" and "Unlocking the Cellar Dreams of A Poet; A Book of Poems." I am a retired police officer. I was a school student and a laborer in the 60's, a butcher in the 70's, and a truck driver in the early 80's. As a laborer, I learned about hard work and humility. As a butcher, I learned about strength and determination. As a truck driver, I learned about loneliness, pride and respect. Finally, as a police officer, I learned about life, fear and survival. These are lessons I cherish and will never forget for as long as I live.
