A big family, a reading addiction, and the occasional celebrity scandal are the ingredients of life that create one woman's opinion on just about everything.

NOTHING BUT RED

This is a portion of the forward in NOTHING BUT RED:

"I can’t change Du’a’s fate. I can’t punish those responsible for her death. I can’t change the world. But I can make damn sure that at least I don’t slip into apathy—that I keep trying. To do anything else is, in my not-so-humble opinion, immoral. I don’t try to make a difference because I think that I’ll succeed; I try because I couldn’t live with myself otherwise.

So yes, I’ve made this foreword all about me. And I encourage you to do the same: make this fight for equality about you. Don’t start with the world—start with yourself. Start with your apathy. Start with what you are capable of doing to help. Start with your capacity to care.

Everything that you do has the potential to change something, to inspire someone. To remind the people out there fighting the good fight that the work they’re doing has meaning.

The only thing you can ever change is yourself. Have you?"

I don't want to forget. I don't want to be apathetic. Maybe you didn't get a chance to buy NOTHING BUT RED when it came out in April. Go now. Do a good thing. Like Skyla says maybe buying the book won't change the world, but it might change you.
