This book is about a young man who grew up in the country. He left the country and entered the world through the United States Army. In his quest to be accepted as a man he encountered racism, hidden racism, discrimination, and other adversities. He endured pain, anger, depression, and many other emotions during his quest to fulfil a dream and vision from God. Through it all he just wanted to be accepted as a 'man' versus a 'black man'. Who would believe that such a simple quest could cause so much pain and grief. This book answers the following question: Does active discrimination exist within the walls of the United States Army? It shares the challenges to being accepted for the content of your character versus the colour of your skin. Finally, the book achieves its main aim - to illustrate how wrong we are to believe that we have a 'Total Freedom' to excel, which is unaffected by racism, discrimination and favouritism. This story will enrich life with knowledge, wisdom and understanding of the events that go unnoticed by many people during their daily walk of life.
