Description : The Long Journey Home is the story of how a diverse group of post-millennial students rediscovered their local history and truly understood the cost of war. They went beyond the leaning objectives and developed relationships with the mothers and fathers, aunts and uncles, brothers and sisters, and friends of twenty-five fallen soldiers. Black and white, single and married, these soldiers were farm boys, construction workers, mechanics, bus boys, college students, and business managers who deployed to the jungles of Southeast Asia never to return. Like other teenagers of their time, these soldiers enjoyed hunting, fishing, singing, surfing, baseball, ham radios, and riding motorcycles. The Long Journey Home is the story of tears and sadness, patriotism and sacrifice, heroism and comradery. The high school students who engaged in this project will never be the same. Interacting with the Gold Star families forever sculpted them emotionally and intellectually. May we always remember that sacrifice without remembrance is meaningless!

Description : The nationwide lockdown in 2020 to curb the spread of Covid-19 left millions of migrant labourers without jobs, food and shelter. Desperate and helpless, most took to the road, embarking on the long, often fatal, journey home. Ritesh, Ashish, Ram Babu, Sonu, Krishna, Sandeep and Mukesh-migrants from Bihar-undertook a similar journey on their bicycles that lasted for seven days and seven nights. Their harrowing trip from Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh, to their hometown of Saharsa as they braved police lathis and insults, and battled hunger, exhaustion and fear, was documented by National Award-winning filmmaker Vinod Kapri. 1232 km is a story of the extraordinary courage of seven men in the face of tremendous odds.

Description : The novel is an epic tale of mankind during his long journey from birth, to his sojourn on earth until his final homecoming. Though it has biblical allusions, it is not intended to be a direct interpretation of the Scriptures or any other Holy Book. It is not also intended to challenge any traditional or contemporary teachings and dogmas. The book opens with the author’s self introduction narrating an episode in his childhood, until he reached maturity. He stated the basis of his beliefs, and narrated his own version of Creation and man’s unexpected evacuation from his compassionate Father’s home. The long saga of man on earth began and continued for many generation. One time, the Creator was compelled to clean the filthy earth with a devastating flood. In the new life, the Abrahamic journey was launched, leading to the birth of the promised Healer, God’s son Jesus. Jesus Christ introduced upgrades to the old traditions and practices. He offered His own flesh and blood to invigorate man’s being. He gave up his life in crucifixion doing the Saving errand. After three days, Jesus came back to life and gave His relieved followers the mission to spread around the world and gather the people around Him so they can go home to Paradise.

Description : Miracle: The Long Journey Home is a personal narrative of tragedy and loss and one survivor's forty-year journey from trauma and hatred to joy and love through the grace of God. As a seventeen-year-old, the author was the victim of gun violence resulting in the death of a friend and coworker when an armed assailant entered the McDonald's restaurant at which she worked in 1979. The story tells of the trauma experienced by all present that night and the long journey that the author would take over forty years, leading her back to the gunman who committed the crimes and back to our Heavenly Father. Parallel to the author's story is the gunman's background and experience from childhood through his spiritual conversion while incarcerated. The spiritual journey of both the author and the gunman allowed not only for her to forgive him, but to embrace him as her friend and spiritual mentor. This is not an ordinary story of forgiveness, but rather a story of how a deep love of God cleanses the soul of all hatred and anger, leaving only love. The author describes a faith journey that will inspire all, especially those who have been traumatized as survivors of tragedy. Moreover, it will inspire a belief in the power of God to manifest His goodness in the darkest of days of despair, bringing light to even a prison cell where redemption can be born and the unlikeliest of friendships becomes possible.

Description : Author Charles Ota Heller's early childhood in Czechoslovakia was idyllic, but his safe and happy world didn't last long, Three years after his birth, Germany forced an occupation of his country; afterward, most of his young life consisted of running and hiding. His life, just like those of the other youths who lived in Europe during the late 1930s and early 1940s, was shaped forever by the dangers, horrors, and unsettling events he experienced. In this memoir, Heller, born Ota Karel Heller, narrates his family's story—a family nearly destroyed by the Nazis. Son of a mixed marriage, he was raised a Catholic and was unaware of his Jewish roots, even after his father escaped to join the British army and fifteen members of his family disappeared. Prague: My Long Journey Home tells of his Christian mother being sent to a slave labor camp and of his hiding on a farm to avoid deportation to a death camp. With the war coming to a close, Heller tells of how he picked up a revolver and shot a Nazi when he was just nine years old. Heller, now an assimilated American, left the horrors of the past—along with his birth name—behind to live the proverbial American Dream. In his memoir, he recalls how two cataclysmic events following Czechoslovakia's Velvet Revolution brought him face-to-face with demons of his former life. On his personal journey Heller discovered and embraced his heritage—one which he had abandoned decades earlier.

Description : First introduced to the world in her sons’ now-classic memoirs—Augusten Burroughs’s Running with Scissors and John Elder Robison’s Look Me in the Eye—Margaret Robison now tells her own haunting and lyrical story. A poet and teacher by profession, Robison describes her Southern Gothic childhood, her marriage to a handsome, brilliant man who became a split-personality alcoholic and abusive husband, the challenges she faced raising two children while having psychotic breakdowns of her own, and her struggle to regain her sanity. Robison grew up in southern Georgia, where the façade of 1950s propriety masked all sorts of demons, including alcoholism, misogyny, repressed homosexuality, and suicide. She met her husband, John Robison, in college, and together they moved up north, where John embarked upon a successful academic career and Margaret brought up the children and worked on her art and poetry. Yet her husband’s alcoholism and her collapse into psychosis, and the eventual disintegration of their marriage, took a tremendous toll on their family: Her older son, John Elder, moved out of the house when he was a teenager, and her younger son, Chris (who later renamed himself Augusten), never completed high school. When Margaret met Dr. Rodolph Turcotte, the therapist who was treating her husband, she felt understood for the first time and quickly fell under his idiosyncratic and, eventually, harmful influence. Robison writes movingly and honestly about her mental illness, her shortcomings as a parent, her difficult marriage, her traumatic relationship with Dr. Turcotte, and her two now-famous children, Augusten Burroughs and John Elder Robison, who have each written bestselling memoirs about their family. She also writes inspiringly about her hard-earned journey to sanity and clarity. An astonishing and enduring story, The Long Journey Home is a remarkable and ultimately uplifting account of a complicated, afflicted twentieth-century family.

Description : A lot of years have passed since the events discussed in this book took place. I have had to rely mostly on memory since all letters and writings have long since vanished. I never intended to write a book. I instead sought to leave a journal for my children, my grandchildren, and great-grandchildren as to my experiences in my youth and in a very unpopular war. This story revolves around a young man's torturous journey through childhood into the hell of war, and the obstacles to be overcome to bring himself to the journey's end long yearned for.

Description : "The Long Journey Home recounts the history of the black Community of Princeton, New Jersey, from 1776-1976. This was a much-needed journey through the pages of history to rediscover a community's past. The struggles for religious, social and educational equality were faced with determination by a proud community that stood on the threshold of American history and witnessed the growth of a great nation as it stayed in the background. This book is an attempt to bring that history into the foreground to take its rightful place in the development of this nation."

Description : Most people will never be rejected by their family, outcast and alone at 14. Most people won't be threatened, stalked and almost murdered by the mob. Most people will never serve time in a maximum-security prison. But everyone has gone through traumas and devastating disappointments. In this riveting memoir, StevieRay Hansen will lead you through his incredible journey from homeless kid to multimillionaire oilman willing to give a helping hand to other throwaway kids. "I realized that there was a powerful connection between forgiveness and prosperity," Hansen says. "When I finally forgave my parents from my heart, it seemed as though whatever had blocked prosperity came unplugged. "I plowed money back into the business. I gave large amounts to widows and orphans. I made a startling discovery. I couldn't give it all away. God kept multiplying it back to me. Forgiveness changed everything. "It's hard to describe the difference that forgiveness has brought. It's like winning a lottery ticket. You can hold onto the ticket-with all its promise-or you can cash it in and claim your new life."

Description : The Long Journey Home takes a fresh look at one of the most widely-recognized and most frequently interpreted of the many parables taught by Jesus during his ministry. Using the process of metaphysical interpretation along with the concepts of Conscious Evolution and Quantum Science, the Parable emerges from a great story about coming home and forgiveness to an exploration into how our life experiences are valuable teach points and may provide powerful catalysts for quantum shifts in consciousness. Further, when we look at our lives as a classroom and the people who show up as master teachers, we are no longer victims of a randomness of life; rather, we are powerful co-creators of a life whose purpose is to rise above the challenges that come and grow into the Truth of our Being: That we are spiritual beings having a spiritual experience on a human plane in a body. Like the Prodigal Son and Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, when we come to ourselves, we find that we never left home in the first place because the Heart is where Home is. Use the concepts, exercises and prayers in the book to facilitate your own journey home. It is only as long as the distance from the head to the heart.
