Entrepreneur, Madame C. J. Walker once said, “Don’t sit and wait for opportunities to come, you have to get up and make them.”
Co-authors and twin sisters, Loretha Wallace and Loretta Wallace Ellis have done just that with their creation of Tragedy, Yet Triumphant.
Their artistic volume contains motivational short, short stories and poetry. Readers will find that the co-authors believe in: 1. having a positive attitude, 2. maintaining respect for self and others, and 3. setting goals and having a plan to achieve those goals.
As one reads, one will realize that the authors have a rich, spiritual life. Throughout the book one is reminded to value faith even when things may not be moving in the direction that is desired.
They suggested giving the Almighty praise because all blessings come from Him. In fact, their writings proposed that there is no other way to live a decent life, except “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”
The scientist/inventor, George Washington Carver, said “Most people search high and wide for keys to success. If they only knew the key to their dreams lies within.”
The stories and poetry in this book will inspire readers to dream, and follow their dreams to find success.
J. Moffett Walker, Author/Poet, The Mississippi I Love
