For those of us who are your contemporaries and were once neighbors, I have to believe that my understanding of your book, and its visceral impact, are heightened by my sense of familiarity. For example, I was a student of Mr. Renwick in the early 1960s. He commanded our respect and he taught us so much. We must bring back capable teaching of social studies and it must include all of our histories. Thank you from my heart for sharing your stories.
